    Denton Leaders Consider Tougher Parking Regulations

    New development in Denton has put a squeeze on already limited parking, and city leaders are now considering tougher parking requirements. (Published Thursday, Jan. 11, 2018)

    The city of Denton is considering tougher parking space requirements for apartment buildings. City leaders say a lack of sufficient parking is a growing problem, especially in neighborhoods around the University of North Texas campus.

    "Yeah, it's very frustrating," said UNT junior Simeon Idahosa. "It's hard to find spots, every day of the week."

    Denton Mayor Chris Watts says many apartment buildings do not have adequate parking spaces, so residents are forced to find on-street parking. That has prompted a review of parking requirements in the city's trouble spots.

    "From a public safety perspective, people get home late at night, there's not enough places to park on site, then they have to find an off-site spot," Watts said. "Those options may be very limited."

    Domino's Pizza Launches Outdoor Delivery

    [DFW] Domino's Pizza Launches Outdoor Delivery

    Domino's Pizza is tweaking its home delivery service for those times you're not at home.
    After years of delivery right to your doorstep, Domino's drivers will now deliver to outdoor locations.
    That includes beaches, parks, landmarks, and other outdoor locations across the country.
    Domino's says its drivers will deliver to 150-thousand locations from the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, to the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign.
    The locations are now active and show up in the company's app or website as "Domino's Hotspots."
    Customers pre-pay for their orders, select a location, and your pizza is on the way.
    Previously, Domino's delivered to offbeat locations, but, the new service sets up designated drop off points.
    The service was tested last fall in Miami before being rolled out nationwide.

    "It's a good idea," Idahosa said. "It makes them more aware of what we're going through."

    With Denton's growth, parking is already at a premium. Watts says the timing makes sense. Leaders say a public hearing will be held — possibly next month — before any parking changes are considered in Denton.
