COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) -

If you're thinking about parking in Mainstrasse for Opening Day and walking to the stadium, you might want to think twice. New parking regulations are now in effect. 

"There's been times where the businesses, they've gotten their customers to show up but they don't have a place to park,” said Covington City Engineer Mike Yeager. 

Some areas are now residential permit parking only, some are monthly parking and others are metered. 

"I'm excited because I can park on the street. Today I got lucky and found a spot, but normally that doesn't happen,” said Mainstrasse resident Bret Battaglia. 

Bret Battaglia lives on Bakewell Street, which is now residential permit parking only.

According to the city, other changes include making Bakewell Street one way north from West 9th to West 6th Street to accommodate more residential parking.

Residential permit parking is $25 a year. 

Tim Eversole is the owner of the Bean Haus Bakery & Cafe and he too welcomes the new parking regulations. 

"People would park here to go to business to work across the river. They would take a bus they would be parked her and gone all day,” said Eversole. 

There were some business owners and managers who did not want to talk on camera, who said they think the new regulations will be bad for business and some customers agree. 

"The way its set up I think it's going to deter people from coming down here. We were actually just talking about this,” said Mainstrasse customer Terri Rentrop.
