Chimney Rock Village Council and Chimney Rock Volunteer Fire Department have entered a lease agreement regarding a parking lot owned by the fire department, off Terrace Drive. 

Meeting Tuesday night, council approved the lease agreement to utilize a portion of the fire department’s lower parking lot to provide much needed parking for tourists or village employees.

“This is going to be a real asset,” said Town Clerk Bill Whitman.

Firefighter and businessman Steve Gale said there will be other meetings to determine some of the specifics of the agreement.
