Economics faculty Don Holley, Guido Giuntini and Anne Walker and graduate student Steve Hall recently completed a project with the Economic Development office of Mountain Home. The project is a feasibility parking study of the Mountain Home downtown area regarding changes that involve removing parking spaces.
The group presented the study on August 27 to the Mountain Home City Council.
“It was extremely well received,” said Giuntini. “The result of the study is that eliminating a few parking spots for beautification purposes, given current usage, will not significantly impact parking availability. Some local businesses were adverse to change.”
