Layout of BB&T Lot Posted On Main Street

The former bank is no more than a pile of rubble.

As nears an end, a sketch of what the empty lot is designed to be come is posted along the fenced-in area on Main Street.

The town purchased the 19,700-square-foot building at 33–37 S. Main St. in 2011 under . The building is now little more than a pile of rubble.

The town considered relocating town hall to the site, and while the town may eventually move its main building there, for now, the plan is to replace the demolished building with a parking lot.

The sketch, pictured above, portrays a mock-up of the parking lot to come.

At the top of the picture is a space designating the building and at the bottom is a space that represents .

The mock-up is labeled with 16 parking spaces on the side facing the sheriff's office and 17 spaces on the side facing The Tower.

The lot exits onto Burns Alley and feeds into the parking garage.

Do you think this lot will help with parking problems in Bel Air? Do you feel this project was an appropriate use of town funds? Leave a comment below to continue the conversation.

OK, I'm counting 33 spaces. Are they metered? Do half of them belong to the Tower or the Sheriff's department? Any spaces help so we'll see. Another free lot would be nice.

The drawing has a number 17 and 16 respectively circled on the drawing in the parking sections. I believe the drawing is representative.
