“Is parking really the highest priority need for Down Town North Platte?”
I’m not convinced parking is the highest priority need for Down Town North Platte. From what I’ve been told infrastructure including sanitary sewers and water mains are the real priority. The streets and curbs in Down Town are in desperate need of repair. I also hear a lot about the condition of the canopies in down town.
I don’t see the advantage in the City becoming a larger property owner in Down Town. I believe development should increase the tax roles and not decrease them. I also wonder if the City can afford to complete the project if the CRA is unable to fund the completed parking lot.
What is the problem this solution is trying to solve?
