Business Parking coming to downtown Monroe
24 Dec 2020
Business parking zones are in the process of being added in downtown Monroe. The Monroe City Council approved the first reading of an ordinance adding the zones along the ease side of North Commerce Street from American Street to Marion Street during its December meeting.
“It is one of those things, personally, I ride that fence of wanting to do it because I think it would be beneficial, but where do you stop anytime someone has a problem with parking throwing up no parking signs in the town of Monroe,” councilman Sean Wilson said. “With a new business moving it and potential businesses in the Phifer buildings, I am leaning towards pulling the trigger and putting business parking on that side. It is hard enough keeping businesses in a small town, let’s help them.”
