Parking Problems Mounting Near New Grandview Area Restaurant & Bar

COLUMBUS (Tara Morgan) -- People who live near a new Grandview area restaurant are taking action to solve parking problems.
Ever since the Winking Lizard opened in late February at 5th Avenue and Grandview, neighbors say parking has been tricky.
"I end up having to park two blocks down or a couple streets over and then walk around not a huge problem but it hasn't been like that till pretty recently," said Adam Lehman.
Lehman's neighbor posted flyers on homes Thursday to drum up support for parking restrictions on 6th Avenue and on Grandview Avenue.
Nikki Linkous plans to bring up her concerns to the Fifth by Northwest Area Commission next week.
Linkous says she wants permit parking like in other Columbus neighborhoods.
"If we had permit parking it wouldn't effect Winking Lizard business their patrons can go and find parking where they're supposed to instead of encroaching on residents," said Linkous.
When we first told you about this problem in March, Winking Lizard management said it was doing its best to accommodate even asking customers to respect the neighborhood.
The Fifth by Northwest Area Commission had no comment.
