The city of Paducah plans to hear public feedback Thursday about downtown parking.

The engagement event will be in an open house format, allowing for residents to stop by any time between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Thursday at the City Hall atrium, 300 S. 5th St.

Attendees can learn more about the parking study that's underway, provide input on their experiences with parking downtown and also give feedback on ways to improve access and mobility throughout downtown.

"Over the past few weeks we have received numerous comments about parking in downtown," stated Katie Axt, Paducah Main Street director. "This is an organized open house where attendees can see data collected so far for the parking assessment and provide us parking feedback and their parking stories.

"These one-on-one conversations help the city provide better service and public amenities to our residents and visitors today and in the future."

In December 2019, the city contracted with Louisville-based firm Concepts21 to conduct a parking assessment on 12 blocks of downtown Paducah. It has a focus area around the parking lot at Second and Broadway streets.
