Powell leaders and Downtown business owners are at odds as they try to sort through the city's parking issues.
"None of the proposed users (for 8 N. Liberty St.) include a 'full-service, sit-down, drinking and-or eating establishment'; therefore a valet parking plan is not required," wrote city Development Director Dave Betz and Law Director Gene Hollins in a Sept. 30 memorandum to City Manager Steve Lutz.
But Vince Margello, a Liberty Township resident who owns property near Powell and Liberty roads, said Oct. 5 there will be major parking problems when Jeni's moves into the building.
