City to allow residential use of downtown buildings

Published: Sunday, March 17, 2013 at 08:01 AM.

Mayor Linda Cain said the ordinance calls for off-street parking for residences, and that usages will have to conform with the historical designs found in the downtown area.

Councilman Kevin Russell asked how the city would enforce parking issues.

Miner said it would take the commitment of the city and the property owners alike to manage parking. “We have lots downtown, so people might have to walk a little bit from their cars to their apartments.”

“That is something the business would have to work out with their tenants,” Cain said.
