Norfolk City Council to talk parking and development


NORFOLK, NE (US92) - The Norfolk, Nebraska City Council will put their focus on economic development and downtown parking ordinances when they meet Monday night.

The downtown regulations have been heard by the council in previous weeks, however a new economic development measure has not.

The area of focus for the economic development talks is the northeast corner of the intersection of Highways 81 and 275.

It's one of the busiest intersections in town and has been home to a number of used car lots over the years.

City leaders will be discussing and voting on a resolution that would authorize a blight and substandard determination study.

If the vote is successful, it would move the conversation on to the Norfolk Planning Commission and could eventually label the area as blighted and substandard in and effort to use tax increment financing to develop the piece of land for future business growth.

The council will also focus tonight on a number of ordinances that will set a new parking fine in city, reduce the parking time limit downtown from 3 hours to 2 hours and change the days of those time restrictions from Monday thru Saturday to Monday thru Friday.

If the ordinances pass the votes Monday, the changes would go into effect on October 1st.
