1/26/19 Update – This past Tuesday the City Council was presented with plans for a new parking garage and parking lot.
At a cost of $5,000,000, the proposed 4 story Parking Garage would include approx 200 parking spaces, an elevator and two staircases; and it would be just under 44 feet tall. Here’s the Artist Rendering.

The building would be located at the southeast corner of Main and Sixth streets and there are plans to make the outside suitable for murals, banners and other art so that it fits within downtown.
The Parking Garage is in the “schematic phase.” The final design will be subject to review by the city council and HARC. The target completion date is summer 2020.
As for the expanded parking lot near the Library, there’s nothing new to report except that it’s still in the works as well.

12/11/18 – It looks like we are getting more parking downtown! The City is working on a parking garage that would be located behind the Municipal Court Building at Main and 7th Streets.
The new garage would be located on the lot that now has 47 parking spaces. The new parking garage would offer 200 parking spaces.
The City is working out the details to make sure the new garage will work at that location. They are checking to make sure the soil will hold the structure, and working on a design that fits the site and looks good.
Also, the city plans to add another 76 parking spaces across from the Library on 8th street. The new parking lot will take the place of existing county buildings.
The plans will go before the city council this spring.
