BRISTOL PARKING
BRISTOL, Va. -

More discussions are on the way to bring a parking complex to downtown Bristol.

In a work session Thursday Bristol, Virginia leaders heard a presentation by a company offering parking plan proposals.

Several different options have been discussed, including different types of parking garages in three different locations.

"There's a lot of pieces that go into that. You have to look at cost. You have to look actual size and distance to the major attractions downtown; not just the existing ones but the future ones," said Andrew Trivette, the director of community and economic development.

Part of the conversation also included possibly making "pay-to-park" spaces.   

City leaders said all of these options need to be explored so they can develop a more concrete plan and submit that to the city council for final approval in the next few months.
