Don't let vacant downtown space become parking lot
Oct 17, 2012 - Deborah Craig, Riverton
Well, it sure didn't take long for that vacant lot clear by the city at Fifth and Main downtown to become a parking lot. Every time I go by, I see the space filled up with cars.
Can anybody just park there? Do the rules of city parking take effect in there, as in "could I get a parking ticket?" Or is it for VIP parking or some such thing?
I thought the city said the one thing that the vacant lot was not intended to be was a parking lot. When it was sitting empty all that time until the building was torn down, they got pretty tough about keeping people out with chains and barriers.
I do hope they arrive at a better idea than "parking lot" for that vacant lot. I know they are talking about it, and the sooner the better for an answer.
