City Closes In On Deck Property Purchase

City Closes In On Deck Property Purchase

By Beth Milligan

A long-discussed new public parking deck serving the west end of downtown could soon move one step closer to reality.

City officials are nearing the deadline to exercise a $1.3 million purchase option on a vacant piece of property at 145 West Front Street. Commissioners Tuesday will consider authorizing a one-week extension on the option so staff can finalize funding plans, with the goal of pulling the trigger on the deal June 6.

The purchase would allow the city to eventually build a public parking deck containing at least 400 spaces on the site, which sits at the southeast intersection of Front and Pine streets. Funds to pay for the property are available in the city’s parking system fund, but a complex purchase agreement with the owner has delayed the deal. more
