Hayesville Mayor Harry Baughn recently painted new angle parking lines replacing parallel sections to increase spaces on Herbert Street.
Downtown parking and pedestrian connectivity are part of the Small Town Main Street/Historic Hayesville Inc. work plan with more areas needed to accommodate new businesses and their customers.
The Economic Vitality committee is assisting Mayor Baughn with plans for additional spaces and traffic flow.
HHI recently purchased a 6-seat golf club cart that is a quiet, non-polluting form of mobile access for seniors or those with impaired mobility, by providing a "shuttle" from nearby parking and housing to downtown events, shopping and the library.
This new "service" will not only assist the town improve the life of our seniors but engender further economic growth.
As more new businesses downtown create further pressure on downtown parking, it makes this project a welcome addition.
