VOL. XLT—NO. T • — ^Opinions Differ On Solution of Parking Problem Survey Shows Some Who Opposed Plan in '42 Now Favor Meters SoniH businessmen, who were opposed to parking meters when the itlea was tried in BlyUicville in 3042, will be found supporting the idea of giving the meters a new trial when voters in the citv go to the poll Tuesday in the ger eral city election. In addition to electing a city clerk, city attorney, municipal judge and three aklcr-, the voters will approve or reject the parking- meter proposal, also a special one- rmll tax for funds for the library and the matter of doubling the city's area by annexing adjacent areas. Businessmen, their customers and city officials ajfree that Ihe i t s , a parlim £ problem lo solve, hut survey of Interest in lhe parking meter proposal yesterday and today brought a variety of comment. Positions taken by individuals rip a » e .7. ff j m - ? nthusias ''c support to delayed decisions and In some Instances opposition to the idea. Some said they were keeping their minds open until they could obtain more information about where the meters would be Installed, the hours of operation, the cost (or inconvenience, to those who must park thctr cars in or near the business area eially, and just what the citizens could expect in the wa v of street improvements from the rev n III l^s. rn K*» ,1 A..-;..*.,i r zroin operatini Mayor E. R. Jackson said that it i a s the present plans or city offi- ials to install the meters only on Main Street in the most congested area as the Initial step in trying to solve the traffic problem.

He said such a plan probably would call for an equal division of the cost of maintaining the meters until they were paid for and then full cost of maintenance would become the city's responsibility and the city would receive all of the profits. No estimates concerning probable profits have been made. It 1s proposed that, metres be installed which will use either nickels or pennies. A nickel would entitle a car operator to park hi s vehicle for one hour and two nickels could be placed in the meter to pcrmit- tv.-o-hour use of the parking spnce without the risk, of a ticket from police for overtime parking. These same meters would have slots for ki pennies and for one penny a njotor- isl could use th e parking space for 12 minutes. ' Angle-parking would be continued on Main, Mayor Jackson said but the angle would be changed to give a little more room for traffic This -.vould reduce by four cars the number which could be parked in a single block, he said. Cars now are rcctnlied to park at a 30-deirrce ang!e. Special loading zones would be provided for the tnises on Main Street. Among the business and professional men favoring the installation of parking meters Is C. G. Redman civil engineer. He said he believed the use of meters would materially relieve the parking siluation In the congested oreas. Response Varies A merchant on Main gave wholehearted approval to the Idea. lie said the meters would put an end to day-long parking and keep the parking space available to shoppers It should make shopping In Bly- thcville more convenient, fuid It should help business, he said Another operator on Main suggested that his customers expected to find it much more convenient lo park nearer the stoics they want* to enter, and many' have endorsed the Idea. James Roy. attorney, expressed approval of llic meters for Main Street, but opposition to placing them elsewhere until it is demonstrated that more meters actually I will solve the parking problem. One businessman expressed doubt tliat visitors to the city would want to pay for the privilege of parking on the streets, and he was fearful that the plan might drive business elsewhere instead of making it more desirable to trade In Blytheville Another expressed similar views but added that he was delaying a final decision. Some operators of businesses off of Main Street, but near cnough to be in the congested parking area suggested that the use of meters should be beneficial and provide revenue needed for street Improvements. Others expressed fear thatuse of the parking meters on Main would merely shift the parking problem to new areas and could possibly hamper traffic on the narrow streets.
