City of Abilene Discussing More Parking in Downtown Abilene

ABILENE, Texas (KTAB)- As Downtown Abilene grows, so does the concern for places to park.

As it stands now, some Abilene business owners and residents agree the parking situation is due for a change.

"Parking in downtown is always interesting," stated Darla Harmon with the Center for Contemporary Arts.

During normal business hours or when an event is taking place, like "Art Walk," it can be hard to find a place to park.

"There is some talk about changing the parking the way it is right now," added Harmon. "How we have nose end parking to parallel parking. I don't know if that will be more efficient."

Those who frequent downtown say any discussion for future chanage is welcomed.

"I think it could be better, sometimes it's difficult to find parking," said Jorge Armbacher.. "If there could be like a parking garage or something that would be ideal."

Right now nothing is set in stone for this change but the city is discussing several options.
