WAYNESBORO, Va (WVIR) - A battle over parking in downtown Waynesboro is headed to City Council. The city has scheduled a public hearing Monday night about parking spaces at a building along East Main Street.

The owner of the property says he doesn't have enough room for his customers. The building is currently home to an auto shop and a nonprofit organization.

Visitors used to be able to park across the street, but that's no longer allowed.

City leaders are considering proposals for on-street parking close by.

“We want to try and work with him and what we've been trying to do is increase the number of spaces that he has access to within 300 feet of his building,” said Michael Barnes, director of planning.

City leaders say they're hoping to revitalize the East Main Street corridor, and helping to make sure every business has enough room for parking is part of that goal.

The public hearing is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. at the City Council building.
