The city of Grass Valley is changing parking restrictions for street parking in the downtown area. Police Chief Alex Gammelgard explains the change will allow for businesses to set up expanded curbside offerings. He says part of the ordinance allows city staff to make changes to facilitate business needs.
Gammelgard says along withe these immediate changes, they are exploring more changes that could be beneficial to businesses trying to abide by the new social distancing rules and other regulations.
The proposed changes were approved as an urgency ordinance so it will go into effect immediately. A permanant ordinance is also moving through the process but will take another meeting to approve and then another 30 days before it will go into effect.
