Sechelt’s Cowrie Street to remain two way

Cowrie-2-way-street-The District of Sechelt Council has determined to keep Cowrie Street open to two-way traffic for the foreseeable future. “Council heard from the local business community and, in particular, the merchants that they do not want Cowrie Street to be one-way,”said Mayor John Henderson.

While the proposal for altering area traffic flow and increasing available parking will not proceed, Council will continue to look at creative ideas to bring more people into the downtown Village area.

“The exercise has resulted in many innovative ideas being brought forward”, Henderson said. “We know it is clearly possible to have bus service on a one-way Cowrie Street. We also heard that converting parts of Cowrie to pedestrian-only is of interest to some, as is the idea of back-in angle parking. Ultimately, the one-way initiative has engaged people in thinking about new ways to create a positive environment for businesses, residents and visitors alike – which is a win for Sechelt.”

Sechelt Council and staff will continue to search for ways to improve to accessibility, attractiveness and level of activity in the community’s downtown core and welcome any suggestions from the public.
