Bluffton town officials and staffers will meet tonight to discuss updates to a recent study of the Calhoun Street area.

The study examines issues like traffic and parking in Bluffton's main shopping and dining district.

Business owners and residents on Calhoun Street and areas of Old Town near the Promenade have long complained that rapid growth has brought an influx of cars but not enough parking space.

A plan to add dozens of new parking spots along Dr. Mellichamp Drive began to take shape earlier this year and will likely be discussed tonight.

The workshop begins at 6 p.m. in the Rotary Community Center at Oscar Frazier Park, 11 Recreation Court.
