Regina residents who live around both the new and old Mosaic Stadium fear they could lose their right to permitted parking during large events.
The city is considering removing the “parking permits zones” which allows parking during major events at Mosaic Stadium only to local traffic.
The North Central Community Association is urging residents of the area to attend a city meeting Tuesday night to discuss options on the matter.
Michael Parker, the association’s Executive Director says “permitted parking” means during large events such as Rider games, only residents who live in the area can park on the surrounding streets.
Parker says the parking struggles are nothing new for residents living next to the Stadiums and Evraz Place.
He says if the parking ban was removed for major events many people who don’t have driveways or back alley spaces will be forced to park blocks away from their homes.
A final decision is to be made closer to the 2017-2018 football season.
The Public Meeting is Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Albert Scott Community Centre, 1264 Athol St.
