Some East Avenue residents are opposed to a proposal to rezone a building on their street to house offices because of parking problems.
The street is too small to handle parking for residents now, said James Gruber, of 17 East Ave.
Brendan D. Fitzsimmons, of Groh Realty Co., said garages near the 26-32 East Ave. building could be torn down to provide between 30 and 40 more parking spaces.
The building is owned by Trusts A&B, of which brothers Vincent and Charles Groh are trustees.
Council members Al Boyer and Wally McClure said parking would probably be a bigger problem if the building becomes residential apartments.
