In a recent WHKP online web poll, 32% of the respondents said they would shop Hendersonville's Downtown LESS when the new parking rates are schedule to begin - with 10% of those replying saying they would shop more.

Additionally 7% said they would shop downtown about the same and an overwhelming number of respondents - 51% - said they would NOT shop downtown at all. 

The city is set to dedicate the new 200+ parking garage at the corner of 5th Avenue and Church Street next Wednesday, March 1st at 1:00 pm, to which the public is invited to attend.  In addition meters have been added on Main Street and Side Streets with kiosks in strategic locations to make meter payments throughout the downtown area.

News media has been publishing the new downtown parking rates over the past month.
