SOEC Parking Study

Consultation has concluded

The wheels are in motion on a new parking study for the South Okanagan Events Centre (SOEC) complex. The City has hired Urban Systems to update the study they conducted in 2015 to reflect actual activity levels and impacts now that the Cascades Casino has been operating for over a year. The parking study was included in this year’s budget as a result of feedback from the community as well as the need to update the information available about parking in support of the work on the business case for the vision for Penticton’s arenas. The main purpose of this study is to identify solutions to make the site operate more effectively and better utilize the parking that is available. Recognizing that parking at the complex has been an important topic of discussion for the community, the City is inviting residents to be part of the study. Watch this site for more information on how you can get involved in the study.
