By Benjamin Flowers: The Belize City Council launched its Parking Meter Pilot Project on April 4, and while there was initially some pushback from residents and businesses, Belize City Mayor Bernard Wagner says that he is seeing the initiative gradually catching on.

Wagner explained that, with all new things, people need time to adjust, and that the pilot project, which saw meters installed on Albert Street from the intersection with Orange Street to the intersection with Dean Street and from the Newtown Barracks exit by the Ramada Hotel to Midtown Restaurant, will only run for a year.

“This initiative is built on the fact that we want to gather some data to find out how it works, and we have seen it working,” Wagner said. “I was on Albert Street this morning and I saw people using the facilities.”

Wagner said he is also getting increased positive feedback out the meters from residents who would normally not shop in the downtown area because of limited access to parking.

“Gradually we are getting used to it. That’s how change happens. When change happens it requires a change in the mindset,” Wagner added. “The goal of this exercise is to ensure that all Belize residents have an equal opportunity to use the public space of the city.”

He said that after the end of the pilot project the City will review the level of usage, accessibility in terms of getting the cards and using the meters, and troubleshoot for any issues residents may have had using the meters during the pilot.

Wagner went on to say that he envisions a time, 10-15 years from now when there are parking meters installed all over Belize City.
