Kapuskasing City Council is set to modify the parking allowances at North Centennial Manor with regards to street parking in front of the facility. This is being viewed as more of a band-aid solution until a more concrete solution can be found for the problem.
Parking at the manor is too small for the facility’s visiting volume, so people are parking on the street and it’s causing a visibility issue with regards to traffic. The manor suggested the city eliminate the street parking, and while that works for the traffic issue it doesn’t at all address the other concerns.
Those concerns are the lack of parking at the facility, and the fact they need a bigger parking lot. There is land available on the manor’s property, but the issue the city says, is funding.
