LIBERTY - A group of business people concerned about the lack of parking on Beldon Avenue learned Wednesday that more parking will be available in the near future.
The Wolford brothers, Malcolm and George, who have downtown rental property, and business people, who rent the property, are concerned about the lack of public parking near the businesses.
Malcolm Wolford told the City Council that a restaurant and smaller businesses on the east side of Beldon Avenue have little parking. More vehicles are parking on Beldon because of the new senior citizens building and another new business.
"If you own any property downtown, you know it's hard to rent and keep it rented," said Malcolm Wolford. "We don't look at it as just helping us, we feel like we're helping businesses to stay downtown."
