OXFORD — Anyone who’s ventured into downtown Oxford after a University of Mississippi game knows parking is scarce on the Square.

Mayor George “Pat” Patterson says local officials are now studying the possibility of building a parking garage.

Officials say such a facility could alleviate the parking shortages that peak on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights.

Patterson tells the [ITAL]Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal[ITAL] a committee of downtown business owners, workers and residents will study possible locations, impacts, designs and financing for a parking garage.

Financing would likely be one of the main issues for building a parking garage. Patterson says taxes won’t be raised to pay for it.
