Downtown parking

The Town Council approved a parking plan Monday to help decisions on how to manage downtown streets and lots. The discussion is more than two decades old.

The town will host an open house from 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesday at The Wort Hotel to present the results of recent parking counts and to hear feedback from residents on the third-party parking study that is underway.

“Parking is a key component of our overall transportation and quality of life here in Jackson,” Planning Director Tyler Sinclair said in a press release, “and it’s ... very important for us to hear community members’ ideas and input regarding parking.”

The town contracted last December with Kimley-Horn, a planning and design engineering consultant, to study parking in downtown Jackson.

During the open house, the consultant will give an overview of the data collected so far. After that, there will a question-and-answer session.
