CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - A plan to better manage the millions of visitors who flock to Charleston proposes encouraging more bicycling and walking and having some tourists park on the north end of the Charleston peninsula.

Local media outlets report that dozens of people turned out Monday to comment on a plan developed by the city’s tourism management advisory committee.

The panel has been working on a plan to help the city better manage the 3 million tourists who visit each year.

One suggestion is a welcome center on the upper part of the peninsula allowing visitors to park and take a shuttle downtown.

But one resident said parking elsewhere won’t help congestion it there’s free parking in the historic district. Another said the city needs safer sidewalks and bike routes.
