YORKTON - The City of Yorkton will once again be offering free seasonal parking in the downtown area, and other dates in the year ahead. 

To encourage business activity in the downtown area of Yorkton, Council has historically offered forms of free parking in downtown during the holiday season, explained Nicole Baptist – Bylaw & Safety Supervisor with the City at the regular meeting of Yorkton Council Monday. 

The following days will have free parking in December and into 2022; 

* December 13-24, 2021

* February 9-15, 2022 (Valentine’s Day)

* April 13-20, 2022 (Easter)

* July 4-8, 2022 (Yorkton Ex Summer Fair)

* August 29-September 2, 2022 (Back to School Week)

* October 31-November 4, 2022 (Harvest Showdown) 

Enforcement of on-street parking will continue as the free parking only relates to the parking lots.

“Anytime that the City is offering free parking in our downtown parking lots we will lose revenue. Based on the revenue we’ve had thus far in 2022, we anticipate a loss of approximately $75 per week that we offer free parking,” added Baptist. “. . . Administration anticipates a loss of approximately $525.” 

Administration will post signage on multi-space pay station machines explaining that parking is currently free in those lots.

The free access is for the four Multi Space Pay Station Parking Lots and the Permit Parking lots located on Myrtle Avenue, Betts Avenue, First Avenue and Second Avenue.
