Parking in downtown Bowling Green has once again become a point of contention, city officials learned Monday evening during the Board of Aldermen’s General Committee Meeting.
According to City Administrator Barb Allison, a downtown business owner contacted City Hall staff last week to complain about a handicap accessible parking space being placed in front of their business in downtown.
City of Bowling Green Mayor Don Hunter said he, too, had been contacted by the business owner, who expressed concerns that the parking space potentially had the ability to hurt the downtown retailer by limiting the parking of able-bodied store patrons and driving them away from the store.

The downtown business area in Bowling Green is filled with vehicles on Tuesday morning.
