Remember Downtown Mobility Study Open House Tonight!

So downtown parking is the thing right now.

Either we have a surplus of parking downtown, and meters are "the last thing we need" and there's room for bike lanes; or we don't have enough parking, we need meters, and we can't spare any room for bike lanes, sidewalks, or parklets.

Which is it???

If there's so much parking downtown, why is this a problem?
The final Open House of the Downtown Mobility Study is tonight.

Mobility Study Open House, June 12th, 4-6pm
From the City:
A third and final public forum to present draft recommendations will occur on Wednesday, June 12, from 4- 6 pm at the Salem Library, Anderson Rooms. Please join us to review project details, recommended phasing, and costs. Computer-generated imagery of some projects will be available. Presentations will occur at 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.
Do you suppose we can have a rational and consistent conversation about parking as part of this?
