City announces three public meetings on downtown parking, traffic issues

mowen@ledger-enquirer.comFebruary 25, 2013 

The Consolidated Government has announced three public hearings over the next three weeks to deal with traffic and parking issues that have arisen from a consultant’s recommendations for downtown Columbus.

The city held one forum Friday evening in Council Chambers, which was sparsely attended, possibly because of a lack of publicity.

The next public meeting will be Thursday at 5:30, also in the Council Chambers on the Plaza Level of the Government Center. It will be to discuss an urban design consultant’s ideas about traffic flow, including possibly restoring two-way traffic to some currently one-way streets.

The same topics will be addressed at the next meeting, Thursday, March 7, in Foley Hall at the Springer Opera House.

The issue of downtown parking will again be addressed at a meeting Tuesday, March 12, also in Foley Hall.
