Mayor Lioneld Jordan and a committee of city staff and hired consultants on Tuesday recommended locating a downtown parking deck on the south end of the Walton Arts Center property.

By the Numbers

Deck Options

Three options for a downtown parking deck would provide different numbers of parking spaces and would cost different amounts. The city would lose more parking revenue during a 12- to 18-month construction window by building a deck on the main lot west of the Walton Arts Center or a lot south of Kingfish bar than by building a deck on the south end of the arts center property.

Total Parking Spaces Net Parking Space Gain Parking Revenue Lost Total Cost

Theater Site 246 218 $83,700 $6.37 million

WAC Lot 339 242 $199,000 $6.38 million

East Lot 293 233 $134,500 $6.29 million
