The parking lot sits in front of Burnside Plaza, which hosts Tillicum Laundry and other shopfronts, as well as the Winners Chapel. Now it also plays host to signs indicating pay parking is in effect and a ticket machine under the eave of the chapel.

According to a spokesperson from WestPark, the company took over the lot in November, and began policing the lot in the first week of December.

The spokesperson said the cost of parking in the lot is $1 per hour. Fines incurred are initially $55, but go up to $80 if they are not paid within the first 10 days of receiving the ticket.

Editor’s note: parking is still free in the lot directly in front of the businesses in Burnside Plaza, pay parking is in effect for the parking lot in front of Burnside Plaza on the property where the Winners Chapel sits.
