Parking Studies

Chevy Chase

In the Chevy Chase area of Lexington, Kentucky, two complaints arose in regard to four new computerized parking meters. As a result of these two complaints, the Parking Authority did a study to determine if the area had sufficient parking to meet the various needs of residents and local businesses.

Bill Farmer, owner of Farmer's Jewelry, and Leigh Ann Parker-Greathouse of Chevy Barber Shop both said it was inconvenient for their customers to walk half a block to a computerized meter and back to their cars to put the receipts on their dashboards.

Wanda Jaquith, president of the Ashland Park Neighborhood Association, said she was "pleasantly surprised" at the amount of parking. Her concern is that overflow parking ends up on neighborhood streets.

Failure To Enforce City Codes and Non-Enhancement of the Physical Appearance of the Community

This is from the LFCPA's website:

"We will support and expedite projects that improve the quality of life for residents such as adding additional parking resources, renovating existing facilities when needed and enhancing the physical appearance of the community. And, with the same vigor, we will seek to enforce all code requirements."[3] (Italics added)

Meetings

While agendas for every meeting are posted on the LFCPA's website, meeting minutes are not; indicating a lack of transparency from the agency to the people of Fayette County.
