Uptown Westerville is a Place for Smart Parking

Uptown Westerville has free on-street and lot parking. And, when you visit Uptown Westerville or park your vehicle anywhere, the Westerville Uptown Merchants Association encourages you to Park Smart.

Carrie Ryan of the Westerville Police Department offers this sage advice to avoid the theft of valuables from your vehicle:

"Just a reminder to keep valuables out of plain site in vehicles and keep vehicles locked. With the nicer weather, we often get more of these types of crimes. We've had several thefts out of vehicles during the day at public places such as the: library, community center, soccer complex, Everal Barn, Giant Eagle, and other high traffic areas.

Places such as these, with large parking lots, become targets for criminals because they know they often can go undetected and they have a lot of opportunity of to steal valuables.

Hot items seem to be: GPS units, any electronic equipment, CD cases, cell phones, purses, laptops, sporting equipment, etc."

When you Shop Uptown Westerville -- enjoy every moment of your visit and park smart!
