Ukiah Considering Downtown Parking Changes

The city of Ukiah is considering some changes to downtown parking in hopes of adding more spaces. During a public meeting last week at the Ukiah Valley Conference Center, participants complained about a lack of handicapped parking, and the lack of spaces close to the Ukiah Branch of the Mendocino County Library. City staff is considering installing parking meters on School Street, but business owners oppose that idea saying it could impact shoppers visitng downtown. An ad-hoc committee is working on some recommendations for the Ukiah City Council to consider.
