Mayor Recommends Deck Site
Posted: November 28, 2012 at 2:33 a.m.
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
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
