City reminds Rushbrook Trail users of alternative parking options

On Friday, the City of Prince Rupert reminded those who drive
to the trail heads, of the parking options available.

Following up on some concerns from City Councillor Barry Cunningham, the City of Prince Rupert has provided a reminder for those who use the newly re-opened Rushbrook Trail that there are alternative parking options available for trail users.

In an information release from today, the City posted a helpful guide to the parking options available at the Seal Cove end of the trail, with parking spots for trail users located along Bellis Road adjacent to the Seaplane base.

The reminder for residents of the parking spots comes after concerns were raised about those using the trail parking in the industrial area of Seal Cove where the Canadian Fish Seal Cover plant is located as well as McLean's Shipyard operates.

As we outlined on the blog in October, Councillor Cunningham, who has raised the issue of parking at both ends of the trail often at Council sessions, also had called for Free Parking at Rushbrook in the fall and winter months.

There is no indication so far from the City, if that suggestion has been followed up on.
