GREENSBORO, N.C. -- With multiple projects in the works to bring more people downtown Greensboro, city officials say they are prepared for increased traffic and higher parking demand.

Greensboro Department of Transportation Director Adam Fischer said they have studied whether there will be enough parking for events at the future Performing Arts Center, for example.

"We have enough parking spaces after 5:30 p.m. in our Bellmeade Street deck alone to handle a sold-out event for the PAC," he explained.

In addition, Fischer said, there will be 250 new parking spots available on a lot at the Performing Arts Center.

He said in recent years they've also created more than 400 parking spots by turning some travel lanes into street-front spots.

Fischer said an additional parking deck downtown Greensboro in the future is not out of the question, but the city would likely want to share the costs.

"I would see any future parking endeavors to be a joint partnership with whoever is bringing development downtown and the city both partnering together to provide that parking," he said.
