Looking for a place to park?

Posted: Updated:

Charleston City council has carved out 15 minute parking for patrons of a popular restaurant.

Panera Bread customers who have been parking illegally beside the Charleston Town Center store to grab some bagels will soon have a few legal spaces to park on Clendenin Street.

Council members approved a small 15 minute parking zone on  the east side of the Town Center. 

City Council says they are fixing the problem that has cropped up since the opening of its downtown store in 2011.

Committee members first proposed to allow parking from the bread store to the Chop House Restaurant. 

But after working with the affected parties, they all agreed to restrict the parking zone to only three spaces beside the bread shop. 

Once the signs and restrictions are in place, parking will be allowed between 6am and 2pm.
