The City of Weatherford Main Street Program, City Manager Sharon Hayes and Parker County Judge Mark Riley unveiled the new "Public Parking Compliments of Parker County" signs in downtown Weatherford.
The new signs replace the old no parking, bank only parking and towing enforced signs that were located in the Parker County northwest parking lot within the historical district. The signs are designed to make business easier in the central business district and offer a more welcoming atmosphere for visitors.
"We are so pleased to have the new signs in place," said Main Street Director Debra Wakeland. "They are a wonderful way to demonstrate the community pride we have in Weatherford and Parker County. More public parking sends a positive, welcoming message not only to our residents, but our visitors who explore the shopping, business and tourism opportunities.”
City of Weatherford Transportation and Public Works assisted with the project by designing and making the news signs. A total of seven (7) signs were added and represent a City and Parker County collaboration for the downtown area, which is a main focus for the community.
"The new signs clearly reflect the optimistic attitude and progress that we are making throughout the City," said City Manager Sharon Hayes. "We enjoy an outstanding quality of life in Weatherford and want everybody to know about it. The addition of 150 parking spaces will be great for business downtown."
