Why are we considering building a $11,500,000 garage in a remote corner of the the central business district BEFORE we look to simpler solutions

Hudson Street Parking Garage

Many well-thought reasons for voting NO to the garage have already been posted. But here are my central questions? Why on God’s green earth are we considering building a $11,500,000 garage in a remote corner of the the central business district BEFORE we look to simpler solutions such as angled parking stalls, the often under utilized Cottage Place lot, and the potential of the more central N. Walnut Street lot?

Why the hyper focus on Hudson Street? (I think we all know why). I’m not saying that a parking garage should never be built. But the $11.5 MILLION “fix”, especially at that remote location, should not be the FIRST solution we consider to this 80 year old problem. Let’s take more prudent, incremental steps toward freeing up parking throughout the CBD, and then reassess. Tomorrow, please VOTE NO!
