ID=26034417

One Macon organization is combating downtown parking issues.

Macon Action Plan is putting together a strategy to create a parking management system.

Betty Lo said trying to find a parking spot before brunch with her friends, wasn't as easy as she thought it would be. "Signs weren't as clearly marked as I had hoped that they are, so it was a little difficult to understand where I could park and where are prohibited parking on this Sunday," said Lo.
