Re: “Construction underway at Heritage Corner,” front page, Wednesday:

More downtown parking sounds good, on the surface. I only hope some of these new parking spots will be available for the common folks who only go downtown once in a while.

I avoid downtown Wilson like the plague because of a lack of parking. It is awful! Downtown Raleigh is full of parking, but the majority of it is sold on a monthly basis to the people who work or live there. It’s still hard to find a place to park for shopping, court dates or jury duty.

Building a parking deck is not going to be the magic potion for what ails downtown Wilson.
