Carrboro Board of Aldermen to Consider Parking Remedies

Finding a parking space in Downtown Carrboro can be a problem, and The Board of Aldermen is getting ready to sort through some possible solutions.

At Tuesday night’s Board of Aldermen meeting at Town Hall, the board will discuss comments and outcomes from a Parking Summit conducted by the Planning Department back in late January.

The daylong public event at the Century Center gave business owners and other citizens the opportunity to voice their concerns and opinions about parking challenges downtown.

A recurring question was raised that day: How can The Town of Carrboro help provide parking for employees of downtown businesses, and free up more spaces for shoppers and diners?

Another issue that’s sure to get some public attention is whether paid parking is in Carrboro’s future.

Tuesday, the Board of Aldermen could provide direction to the Town staff for moving forward on those and other parking issues.

The Carrboro Board of Aldermen meets at 7:30 p.m. at Town Hall, located at 301 West Main Street.
