Two hours of free parking on Concession Street over the Christmas period appears to have gone over well with business owners and their customers.

“It’s been fantastic so far,” said Leo Santos, owner of Papa Leo’s Restaurant last week. “I’ve had a noticeable increase in people being happy that they’re not paying for parking.”

Supported by the Concession Street Business Improvement Area and approved by city council, the two hours of free parking during business hours along the street began on Dec. 10 and wrapped up on Christmas Eve.

There are approximately 140 parking meters on the street.

It’s the first time there has been free parking on Concession Street and the move is expected to cost the city treasury $5,000.

Santos said he’d like to see two hours of free parking throughout the month of December next year.
