McPherson City Commissioners voted Monday to end parking on the west side of the 500 block of Eshelman Street.
McPherson Police Chief Rob McClarty said this is being done mainly for a safety concern during events held at nearby McPherson Stadium.
“Football games, soccer games,” McClarty said. “All the events.”
The concern was centered around the inability of emergency responders of navigating that particular stretch of Eshelman, which is between First Street on the north and Sharpe Street on the south during game days.
The no parking change passed unanimously.
