Akron Parking

A sign of revival in downtown Akron: valet parking

It's an upscale sign of the revival in downtown Akron: the return of valet parking.  Yesterday the Akron city council approved plans to create valet parking zones for high-end restaurants.  Just a few years ago Akron was having trouble attracting any new ventures in downtown.  Now Councilman Bob Keith calls the demand for valet parking zones a welcome problem.  The mayor says downtown Akron is attracting two million visitors a year.
