The input session was just to gather feedback from the public so that staff could return to the City Council with a recommendation, says city staff.
On Monday, April 19, city officials will hold a public meeting to discuss a proposal to add the downtown square area to the paid parking plan as well.
City staff is still amenable to changes to the proposed entertainment district parking plan.
The impending paid parking program for the downtown area received the most attention at the town hall meeting Monday night.
Last week’s meeting was mostly an overview but the two upcoming meetings will each be focused on a specific aspect of the program.
By July, the city plans to convert free downtown parking to paid lots, said Sharon Crosson, the city’s parking and telecommunications manager.
The meeting is being held to seek public input to be considered and incorporated into the final proposal of the overall parking program.
All three resolutions dealing with parking around Dickson Street passed overwhelmingly at Tuesday night’s city council meeting.
Three resolutions geared toward the entertainment district’s parking will be before the city council at next week’s meeting.
More information released on the proposed Dickson St. parking initiative proposed by the Walton Arts Center and the City of Fayetteville.
The most popular parking lot in Fayetteville’s entertainment district might not be free for much longer.
