Main Street shoppers will soon be able take their eyes off their watches and spend more time looking over the merchandise at local stores.

The Traffic Commission recently struck a compromise with the Main Street Merchants Assn. to temporarily increase the parking restriction on four of seven 15-minute spaces to two hours. Most of the merchants wanted to see all restricted parking eliminated to give customers more time to browse in their shops.

Two-hour parking is allowed along most of Main Street. In the mid-1980s, the city established seven 15-minute spaces to cater to the short-term parking needs of Main Street, said Bernie Dennis, city's traffic engineer.

The six-month arrangement will determine whether more long-term parking is needed.
