Agency ponders parking problems10:00 am | August 28, 2013
After hearing from one of its embattled residents, the Elizabethton Housing and Development Agency discussed potentially revising its parking policy.
Upon listening to the resident during its regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday morning, the EHDA Board of Commissioners learned that parking is easily the most hotly contested topic in the community.
“More than anything else combined, parking is the main problem I hear about,” said EHDA Director Kelly Geagley. “Most of my meetings are over parking. You all just hit the iceberg.”
Although the community has tried systems in the past, currently the agency takes a laissez-faire approach to parking, where “adults act like adults.”
