charlestown@herald-mail.com Having just completed a $54 million expansion last year that included new gaming areas and food service areas, Charles Town Races & Slots is planning another $25 million expansion to give the complex more parking, potential new gaming areas and new offices. Local officials said that when they attended a grand opening for the $54 million expansion last November, they were told that the racing facility was running out of parking space. Under the planned $25 million expansion, the four-story parking garage will be extended along Fifth Avenue toward the barn area, track President Jim Buchanan said Wednesday.

Parking structure questioned By DAVE McMILLION / Staff Writer, Charles Town MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Making sure there is adequate parking downtown has been an ongoing discussion for years, and one remedy that has been considered by Martinsburg City Council members is construction of a parking building. But it appears that idea may be getting less attention. Brad Edwards of Edwards Neff Inc., an Atlanta firm that was hired to do a parking study for downtown, told council members last week that building a parking garage can be costly, possibly as much as $2 million or more, said city council member Roger Lewis.

For close to three years, Charles Town and Ranson officials have been working on a plan to redevelop abandoned or underutilitized commercial buildings that generally are clustered around a CSX railroad line along North Street.

Mohar, a serviceman for Columbia Gas, said he would serve as a "voice of the every-day guy. " He said he decided to run for council because he disagrees with some of the things it has spent money on and feels he could help the city save money. "That's my goal," he said. "Instead of hiring someone to tell us if we need another parking garage or not, I think we could probably do that in-house. " He said he feels the current council sometimes lacks respect for the residents it serves.
