Kirksville Council to consider amendment for city parking code

A measure that would amend the City of Kirksville's parking code will once again be on a city council agenda.

The measure first appeared on the March 5, 2018 agenda.

However, council agreed to postpone a vote on any changes in order to have an informal discussion during a study session.

That brief discussion took place Monday night.

City staffers say changes need to be made to the parking code because some current practices have negatively impacted the community.

Examples include:

  • Front yards filled with concrete
  • Poor walkability
  • Pedestrian safety and storm-water management issues

A big aspect of the proposed amendment would focus on a 40-60 split of parking spaces in front of residential buildings.

That breaks down to 40 percent parking and 60 percent green space.

That change is expected to re-establish the front yard, improve neighborhood aesthetics and manage storm-water run-off.

Council members are planning to vote on the parking changes on Monday, March 19.
