Pricey Parking

 

continued

Council member Sabre Briere, who represents the First Ward, says she hopes "this will be the last parking structure the city builds" as mass transit reduces the need for parking in the future. But Briere has no doubt the space is needed now. "I can't tell you how many messages I get from people who can't find a place to park downtown-and think that it's council's fault."

Fifth Ward Democrat Mike Anglin cast the only vote against the structure-he thinks there's plenty of parking downtown and hopes the recession will kill the project. "I just hope we don't get into it and then have to stop because we've run out of money."
