Is it time to have pay parking in District of North Vancouver Parks?

Argueably the biggest single issue facing the District of North Vancouver's future is money. This past Monday night's regular council meeting saw a presentation from the Parks and Open Space Plan and they were saying just that, that more money was needed somehow from somewhere to keep up our parks standards. One of the ideas bantered around was metered parking like Stanley Park has for the larger DNV Parks.
