"End Of The Road Parking has been evicted from the lot across from the Lund Hotel by Tla'amin Nation. We have tried to negotiate a lease with them, without interest on their part. The date chosen by Tla'amin is July 10, 2017, without reprieve. Lee from Lund Auto has kindly offered to let us run the business in his lot across the street from Lund Auto. ie up the hill. We are attempting to arrange the physical move of our 'shack' the week of July 4 to this location. We will still be parking cars in our long term lots as we do each summer. We will no longer be managing the short term parking areas across from the hotel, or below at Nancy's, or behind the hotel. We will be able to take some short term parkers during high season depending on availability of space. The July 1 long weekend will run as normal from our shack in the parking lot.
We look forward to providing the best possible service to our customers under these circumstances. Thank you."

THE LUND HOTEL - Lot still available for short term parking.
