Please read the two articles below regarding parking in the Tyee Plaza. There is a covenant that exists for the land entitling citizens to 'a reasonable amount' of free parking in the plaza, however, the owners apparently will begin charging Quadra Island commuters. Is this appropriate?

It seems to me that there are more than just Quadra people parking there. If some of the stores are empty, and the parking lot is full, what does that tell you? It would appear that all they have to do is designate a certain area as free parking overnight, and for the rest, you pay a fee! I have also heard that this is not a particularly safe place to park your vehicle, since there are a lot of break ins and thefts.
