QUESNEL, B.C. – Quesnel City Council has approved the purchase of one lot adjacent to the City Hall complex to meet that facility’s parking infrastructure needs.
This strategic property investment will enhance the development of the City Hall complex’s long-term economic sustainability. The facility has seen major developments over the past two years.
The Quesnel branch of the Cariboo Regional District library system will be situated on the ground floor of the building. In addition, the City has long-term lease arrangements with the Ministry of Transportation and Vista Radio (The Wolf and The Rush) on the fifth floor, as well as a lease with the Cariboo-North MLA’s office on the fourth floor.
As more tenants and partners move into the building, there is a need to ensure that there is adequate parking for the public when they conduct business at the facility.
The lot is at 443 Vaughan St. and was purchased for $185,000.
The existing structure will be demolished leaving a sizeable parking area suitable for existing and future uses while adding to the parking space available in the downtown core for public use.
