The city and its redevelopment agency have been trying to improve the parking situation at Jerry Eaves Park. More than 100 youth soccer teams use the park, and there isn't nearly enough parking to meet that need.

The redvelopment agency recently bought four and a half acres of land to expand the parking lot. Earlier this month, the City Council awarded $29,000 dollars to have a parking lot expansion designed. That's in addition to $65,000 that was already awarded. Once the design work is done, bonds will pay for the construction.
