Cape Breton Post - - PROVINCE -

HAL­I­FAX — The days of free park­ing be­hind the Hal­i­fax Cen­tral Li­brary have come to an end. As of to­day, the mu­nic­i­pal­ity said there will no longer be public park­ing al­lowed in the open-air lot on Queen Street be­hind the li­brary. Ac­cord­ing to a re­lease, the city sold the prop­erty to Dal­housie Univer­sity. Park­ing in the lot was orig­i­nally of­fered for free last De­cem­ber to ease the park­ing pres­sures that came with the open­ing of the new cen­tral li­brary and hol­i­day shop­ping, the re­lease said. Free park­ing was then ex­tended un­til the prop­erty was sold, the city said. The re­lease said Dal­housie Univer­sity will in­stall signs at the lot on Thurs­day, stat­ing the school is the prop­erty owner and peo­ple will need a valid Dal­housie park­ing per­mit to use it.
