Diagonal parking has come to West Walnut Street in the downtown business district with Market Street soon to follow.

The change on West Walnut Street was made last week.

Last January the aldermen voted to change parking on one side of both West Walnut and West Market Streets from parallel to diagonal parking. The move is not difficult since both are already one way streets. Mayor Josh Miller said the idea is to create more parking spaces for downtown shoppers to help businesses thrive and flourish.

West Main, which is a two way street with parallel parking, will remain as is with no changes planned.
