Winston-Salem, NC -- City Council passed an amendment to a stadium parking ordinance that could affect plans for a new stadium at RJ Reynolds High School.

The amendment requires stadiums built in the city to have  a certain number of parking spaces--one space per four stadium seats.

The amendment passed 7-1 in Monday night's meeting.

The stadium will only affect new stadiums, not the ones already built, Mayor Allen Joines told News 2.

That means the proposed new stadium for RJ Reynolds High School will have to meet the guidelines.

In its Nov. 27 meeting, the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County school board voted in favor of raising funds for a plan for a new stadium at the school. Under that plan, the new football stadium would hold no more than 2,500 people.

The amendment, which is effective upon adoption, would require the Reynolds stadium to have, at most, 625 parking spaces for fans.
