Fayetteville eyeing first phase of downtown parking plan

Posted: March 5, 2018 at 1 a.m.

Luke Bouxsein, a parking enforcement officer with Fayetteville, changes a battery Friday on a parking pay station off West Avenue in Fayetteville. Consulting firm Nelson/Nygaard has completed a nearly 2-year study of parking downtown. On Tuesday, the City Council will discuss implementing the first phase of the study’s recommendations. One of the first steps of the recommended downtown parking plan is rebranding parking enforcement officers as customer servers, rather than ticket-writers.

FAYETTEVILLE -- Drivers can expect a few changes soon when parking downtown while city officials mull a larger plan to make the experience more intuitive.
