[On Saturday] I attended the public meeting at Casa de la Guerra to share my ideas about the revitalization of the Storke Placita as part of De la Guerra Revitalization. One of the issues regarding the revitalization project is parking. I have long noticed that the News-Press parking lot, adjacent to that of City Hall, is very underutilized. However, when I spoke with the person at the “Parking Table” yesterday I was told that the News-Press parking lot is private property and thus not available.
Could the News-Press make a generous donation of most of that parking lot to the City? Or sell it at a reasonable price? It is such a waste of very valuable space in the historic downtown. No one likes a parking lot. But one that is vastly underused is even worse.
