More parking on 5th Street between Gallatin Street and the railroad tracks will be a reality in the very near future. At Monday night’s second council meeting of the month, the council approved an ordinance to make the east side of the street next to City Hall angled parking while the west side of the street will remain as parallel parking. A map presented to the council earlier this month showed the possibility of up to 25 spots on 5th Street. However, that number will likely be slightly lower as it was noted that the map of spots as shown would cover up a parking lot entrance north of the National Road Interpretive Center and there will have to be an elimination of one or two of the proposed spot to keep that entrance open. Parking will also change on 6th Street as well with the current parallel parking on the street being changed to angled parking on both the east and west sides of 6th Street from Gallatin to the tracks and will result in the elimination of the turn lane on the street as well. The numbers presented to the council shows a possibility of up to 36 spots once the parking change is completed. The changes to 6th Street did not have to be approved in an ordinance at Monday’s meeting as an earlier ordinance on the books already allows for the angled parking on 6th Street.
