Tryon eyes parking solution by Leah Justice

The Town of Tryon may have found a solution to downtown parking issues it has struggled with for at least a decade. Tryon Town Council discussed Tuesday implementing an ordinance similar to one used by the Town of Sylva, which restricts merchants and downtown employees to off-street parking areas. The fine in Sylva for violators is $50. “I think it’s time to do something,” said councilman Doug Arbogast.

Tryon officials have heard complaints for years that downtown employees take up retail parking spaces and hurt downtown businesses. Some merchants in particular have been criticized for parking in front of businesses all day. The town strengthened its parking ordinance in recent years and enforced the ordinance at times, but found that employees would see officers marking tires and simply move their car to a

different space. The town has had two-hour parking signs in place for years, but the ordinance has not been enforced recently. Tryon Town Councilman Austin Chapman said the problem he sees with the Sylva approach is when an employee wants to do business downtown during nonworking hours. “I don’t see how you enforce it, I guess is my problem,” Chapman said. Tryon Town Manager Justin Hembree said the town could either issue some type of sticker to downtown employees or enforce

it like some other town ordinances, which are complaint-driven. He also said he spoke to a Sylva official who said once the town approved the ordinance they saw no other issues. “I’ve sat here and listened for nine years and every idea we’ve come up with has a ‘what if,’” said Tryon Mayor Alan Peoples. Downtown business owner Mary Prioleau suggested the town make some revenue off the new venture and charge new employees $1.50 to $5, or whatever fee the town determines, to buy a sticker. The town could also give out

placards for employees to place in their windshields when doing other business downtown to help prevent ticketing employees when they are not at work, she said. Hembree has met recently with downtown business owners and said he got positive feedback about Sylva’s approach to parking. Hembree said the Sylva ordinance was suggested by a local resident after the town held a public informational meeting last month asking for the public’s suggestions on how the town should handle commercial development. Downtown parking was one issue that arose at the public meeting. Tryon currently charges $15 for a parking ticket. The town has not decided yet what fine it will implement for employee violators if a new ordinance is approved. Hembree said the town could draft an ordinance specific to

Tryon and bring it back to council in January, after looking into areas to designate for employee parking. Most retail blocks downtown have parking in the rear of the building and back doors, but the block from Morris the horse to the railroad tracks does not have public rear parking. “I’d love to see (a draft) in January and start enforcement in March,” Peoples said. Prioleau complimented town officials Tuesday at the close of the meeting on their quick response to several issues that have arisen in recent months, including parking and work to strengthen the town’s zoning ordinance for commercial development. “Two and a half months ago I started calling ya’ll hysterical over some things,” said Prioleau. “I think it’s remarkable what has been done. I think it’s phenomenal how hard and steadfast people have come together and agreed to disagree but move forward.” Peoples responded, “You know what that says? Nearly perfect. Always Tryon.”

Landrum approves updated flood ordinance by Leah Justice

The City of Landrum approved an updated flood ordinance and map last week. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) updates flood maps every 20 years and the city must approve the ordinance and map in order for residents in flood areas to obtain flood insurance. Landrum City Administrator Steve Wolochowicz told Landrum council members Tuesday, Dec. 14 new flood maps created with geographical information systems (GIS) technology indicate that Landrum currently has no homes located in flood zones. Landrum flood zone properties include some land in the areas of Spivey Creek and Wolfe Creek. Landrum Mayor Bob Briggs said the new mapping shows Landrum’s flood plain areas are smaller than were shown on previous maps. City council approved a resolution, an approximately 50-page ordinance and new maps during its meeting last week. The resolution is as follows: “WHEREAS, the Landrum City Council recognizes that special flood hazard areas of the City of Landrum are subject to periodic inundation which results

in a potential loss of life, property damage, health and safety hazards which adversely affects the health, safety and general welfare of our community; and WHEREAS, the Landrum City Council desires to update its regulations with the objective of minimizing potential loss of life and property damage in areas that are subject to flooding; and WHEREAS, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in its recent Flood Insurance Study, has updated its maps and supporting data that are hereby adopted by reference and declared to be part of this ordinance; and WHEREAS, FEMA also recommends improvements to the management of construction in flood hazard areas which are also adopted as part of the text of this ordinance; and WHEREAS, all of these amendments will produce a more effective ordinance that will meet the city council’s objectives, “NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the City of Landrum City Council approves this ordinance, related flood maps and supporting data.” To access the updated ordinance and flood maps, contact Landrum City Hall at 864-4573712.

Letter to the Editor

Letter to Santa care of the Bulletin Dear Mr. Santa Claus: I wonder how old are you? How many skies have you crossed: What size are your shoes? What kind of cookie do you like best, Will you always remember me? When will our planet earth Ever find one true peace? Have I been good enough, Have I made you smile? Will you be warm enough When you cross 10,000 miles? Have you ever wished you had More than one special sleigh? Have you ever followed the wrong star And somehow lost your way?

Tryon Daily Bulletin  /  The World’s Smallest Daily Newspaper

Do you spy on me while I sleep, Is every child a part of you? Have you ever climbed into a space That you were too big to fit through? Have you ever had so much to do That there was something you forgot? Were you comforted by the ones, Who love you, perfect or not? What do you dream about each night When you close your eyes to sleep? Do you see the hungry children Curled up near your tired feet? Are your reindeer shelter pets Were they ever lost or alone? Do the elves have parents too Or are they from orphan

homes? Are we all really so very different Across this great, vast land? Do you think big people know Tomorrow lives in the child’s hand? Can you help someone who is sad With that twinkle in your eye? Can you please teach me someday Like those reindeer, how to fly? Does Christmas time remind you To look back and remember when? Does the Holy birth inspire you; Today, we begin again? Do you know that I believe In special things I cannot see? Like your giant, gentle heart; And God’s love, assuredly. I believe magix still exists

Thursday, December 23, 2010

I need not frankincense or old, Sometimes magic is a simple hug, Kindly offered to a precious soul. Today all that I would like to ask On this wintry Christmas eve; Is that you help those who are lost To find the hope to believe. We have this moment to celebrate To know laughter, to joy in play; Santa, please help the ones I love To unwrap the gift of this new day. Maybe then they too shall find That life’s woven mystery, Is not invisible or unkind When we truly choose to see. I feel your presence in my (Continued on page 15)
