Altering the parking resources for Ellis Street

Open letter to Kelowna city council:

With the upcoming revitalization of Bernard Avenue, would now be a good time to review the Ellis Street truck route as indicated in the downtown plan and reinstall or make improvements to the parking situation on 1600 block Ellis Street?

If I may suggest, an alteration to the allotted parking hours currently situated after 6 p.m, to be altered to 11 a.m. or earlier since large diesel truck traffic is prominently in the early hours of the morning.

This would assist surrounding businesses and the general downtown public with additional parking resources something we currently lack today and more so in the future and furthermore remove noise and pollution from the upscale area and financial district allowing a friendly and toxic free environment downtown.
