City Council approves to have parking restriction removed

November 9, 2018

NORFOLK - The Norfolk City Council approved a parking restriction be removed at its meeting Monday night.

Police Chief Bill Mizner told council members the restriction in question is on the west side of 3rd Street between Whitney and Northwestern Avenues.

Mizner said the parking restrictions on 3rd Street and Hendricks were put into place due to the large amount of traffic created by the Depot when it was open as a bar.

He said since the Depot has closed, one of the residents has requested the restriction be removed.

Mizner said after contacting all property owners, they were in favor of removing the 3rd Street restriction, but wanted the Hendricks one to remain.

The council voted unanimously to remove the parking restriction on all three readings.
