The City of Vancouver will close Beach Drive between Shorewood Drive and Wintler Community Park (6400 Beach Dr.) to allow BNSF Railway Company to perform track repairs starting Wednesday, Jan. 22. The road is scheduled to re-open the morning of Saturday, Jan. 25.
Wintler Community Park will not be accessible by automobile during the road closure. Visitors may still access the park on foot or by bicycle using the Columbia River Renaissance Trail.
People parking on-street in the downtown and Uptown Village areas of Vancouver, will soon be able to pay to park using Passport’s Parking Kitty app.
Passport originally developed Parking Kitty for the City of Portland, Oregon, where it is still in use. The app allows users to pay for parking with their smart phones using a debit or credit card. Users can monitor their parking sessions remotely, and the app even “meows” to notify parkers when their sessions are about to expire.
