Some downtown Findlay business owners are concerned about fewer parking spaces on Sandusky Street. The Courier reports many parking spots on the south side of the street have been done away with during the construction of the Marathon Petroleum parking garage. There’s no guarantee they’ll come back after construction is over as traffic patterns could change.
Renz Salanga is the owner of Stix and the co-owner of Trans Am Meatballs. Salanga told the newspaper there are seven restaurants on the 100 block and only 13 parking spaces right now.
Service-Safety Director Paul Schmelzer said that during peak Marathon travel times some of the former parking spots need to be eliminated to allow for safe driving. Schmelzer added that with the Marathon garage open, many public spots downtown have opened up.
The city will study traffic on East Sandusky to determine how what to do about parking in the 100 block.
