Off-street disability parking regulations updated in Williams Lake

Off-street disability parking regulations have been updated in Williams Lake.

On Tuesday evening council passed a zoning amendment bylaw that will require a certain number of disability parking spaces.

For a residential commercial or industrial facility one space is required for up to 39 regular spaces or four are needed if there are between 125 and 174 regular spaces.

The last time the bylaw was amended was in 1991.

A higher ratio is expected for an institutional facility. Two disability parking spaces are required if there are between two and 29 regular, three if there are 30 to 44 and four if there are 45 to 59.

Under the bylaw, all new designated space will have a firm, slip resistant and level surface; be located close, and be accessible, to an entrance conforming to the British Columbia Building Code 2012 as amended and be clearly identified as being solely for the use of persons with disabilities.
