COLUMBUS, Ohio (24-7 News)--A national firm with an office in Columbus is being given nearly 300-thousand dollars to conduct a new parking study for five select neighborhoods.
Columbus City Council awarded the contract to Kimley-Horn yesterday to develop strategic parking plans for Downtown, Franklinton, German Village, the Brewery District, and the University District.
The company says it plans to be finished with the review by the middle of next year.
A similar study of the Short North was recently completed with recommendations set to be implemented in January.
Other proposals to fix the parking problem there included permits and limiting hours for visitors to park on the streets.
