One thought on “What Are Your Thoughts On Downtown Parking”

  1. Personally, I think the city should make the downtown and it’s feeder streets as inviting as possibe to pedestrians and bicyclists. Double the width of side walks and make 1/2 a class one bikeway. The class 2 paint stripe is not remotely adequate. Many cities, such as New York have modified streets to alternate one way over several blocks. I would bike to downtown and ditch my car if this was done on spruce and blaine. If you build it people will use it. It seems building more parking structures is not a sustainable answer.
