Berkeley County Council adopts public parking plan

June 28, 2013

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — The Berkeley County Council on Thursday unanimously adopted a public parking plan as part of an effort to improve access to the county’s administration building at 400 W. Stephen St.

All of the spaces in the county’s lot off Raleigh Street for what is known as the Dunn Building will be available to the public as part of the plan that was implemented. The parking lot includes a numbers of spaces for the handicapped.

The West Stephen Street parking lot, which also can be accessed via the Berkeley County Judicial Center, will be a mix of public parking and designated county employee spaces, officials said.

Council members agreed to review the parking changes after six months. 

“I just want everyone to know we spent more time on this than the levy rate,” county council President Anthony J. “Tony” Petrucci said after the plan was adopted with last-minute changes proposed by Councilwoman Elaine Mauck.

The parking plan originally was presented last fall by Berkeley County Operations Officer Alan J. Davis.
