Did anyone see this on the WYMT page? That Pikeville is considering putting in paid parking meters in town?
What do you all think of that idea?

Pikeville had parking meters years ago. I remember having to pay a few tickets for not getting to the meter on time.

As much as I enjoy Hillbilly Days, I have always felt the city made a big mistake putting the parking garage where they did.
The riverbed next to the courthouse made much more sense. It would have better served the courthouse and the Expo.
Yes, it would take away from the carnival, but I have also always felt they should move the carnival over by the elementary school, in the area that is now used for the campers/rvs. move them up by the college where they all hang out anyway. The Shriners I mean.
I know this is a little impractical, because parents let their kids go to the carnival, they dont have to worry about them crossing the road alone.
But soon I fear downtown is going to be too crowded for HIllbilly Days anyway.
And hotrod I do agree, it will hurt downtown, right now, its hell trying to get into the courthouse, you have to park at the movies and walk and forget 30 minute parking by the courthouse.
