Task force addresses parking in Raleigh

Parking problems will be up for debate in Raleigh Tuesday. A task force has been working for months to figure out which parking and transportation issues are affecting the Capital City and now they want input from residents.

Whether you live, work or play in Downtown Raleigh, finding a free parking space can become mission impossible. "It's unfortunate, but there's not a lot I can do about it," resident Tracey King said.

With new construction and more people moving to the area, the downtown parking issue is so bad the mayor appointed the Downtown Parking Task Force. "It's too bad since they're trying to make the downtown area better," Tracey said. "Make it more of a nice place to go and hang out."

One solution - more parking decks. The parking deck on Blount Street is expected to be finished this fall if you can shell out a few extra dollars.

If you have any complaints before the final report is turned into the mayor attend the meeting Tuesday night from 7 p.m. - 9 p.m. at the Avery C. Upchurch Government Complex at 222 W. Hargett Street in Raleigh.
