Parking times downtown may get shorter
City officials are scheduled to decide Tuesday whether to reduce downtown parking from two hours to one.
One hour or two? The McMinnville Board of Mayor and Aldermen will be meeting Tuesday night at 7 p.m. to discuss reducing the parking times on Main Street.The recommendation to decrease the length of time visitors are allowed to park came from city Safety Committee members Ryle Chastain and Everett Brock.Chastain said the idea was recommended by downtown business owners as a way to improve parking conditions if the city moves forward with relocating the Driver Testing Center into City Hall. “I’ve received seven or eight emails from people downtown requesting we consider it,” said Chastain.
