The Lexington Council has voted to spend up to $90,000 to build a temporary parking lot for Main Street Baptist Church. The expansion of the downtown convention center is anticipated to wipe out much of the area currently used for church parking.
Elder Wayne Cornelius says church members are happy the council moved in their favor, but long-term issues remain. “So, after this is done, we have to think about long-term, at times when the park comes back into play. Then that’s another whole series of negotiations have to go on,” said Cornelius
