Economics faculty Don Holley, Guido Giuntini and Anne Walker, as well as graduate student Steve Hall recently completed a parking feasibility study for the city of Mountain Home’s Economic Development office. The group presented the study on Aug. 27 to the Mountain Home City Council.
The study looked at proposed changes to downtown parking, including the removal of parking spaces.
“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 averse to change.”
