Major Changes Coming To Jackson Street Near McQuillen Place

Charles City, Iowa – A concept for parking in downtown Charles City was presented to the Charles City Rotary Club on Monday.

City administrator Steve Diers and City Engineer John Fallis made the presentation.

The concept would create 162 parking stalls with off and on street parking along with sixteen parking stalls on the McQuillen Place property.

Fallis said the project will maximize parking spaces, of which there are currently 80 parking stalls.

Fallis said the current layout of the proposed parking area is based on aerial photography.

Fallis said the layout is based on 30 degree diagonal parking.

Fallis said the goal was to use as much of the existing pavement to reduce costs and the plan will reduce the amount of grassy space to incorporate more concrete for the parking area.

The plan incorporates 162 parking stalls. Fallis talked about the next steps in the project.
