Business owners unite against parking proposal

Petit said he would also be greatly affected by the parking ordinance. His restaurant Louis Louis consists of 4,000 square feet. Petit said he has maybe 25 parking spaces. If the ordinance passes he would need 40 or more and one parking space for every two employees.

“The guidelines are too stringent," he said.

Cindy Meadows said the proposed ordinance originated in the Planning Department, which gets so many complaints that they wanted to do something about the parking issue.

Meadows said all the County Commissioners looked at the proposal and have hired a consultant to give an assessment of the parking needs and how to accommodate visitors and guests.

"It's become a big issue," she said.

WANT TO GO? The small business owners group will discuss the parking proposal Sept. 17 at 1 p.m. at the South Walton Courthouse Annex.
