What? Bids?! That's not how we do things around here...
Those extra spaces could be added with the proposed budget it the city really wanted to.
As for future controlled parking i.e. as ln KU garage, isn't it interesting that is considered but when it comes to putting meters in downtown lots, the city commissioners would rather pay someone to walk around with a piece of chalk.
Downtown merchants are screwed with a benefit district. The best way is to have paid parking in all lots downtown, but none of the Commissionrs have the guts nor foresight to do so. They will continue to bumble along with mediocrity.
Since there is plenty of money in Lawrence I see no reason why the city does not adopt a plan submitted by Mike Myers that would connect the Burroughs Creek trail to the river levee and other close by trails. This plan was designed at no cost and is practical.
There always seems to money lying around when city hall wants to do a project. This project costs a lot less money and would provide additional safe passage for cyclists.
For the cost of the Field House Lawrence,Kansas could have several hundred miles of new wider sidewalks in old east Lawrence plus several hundred miles of safe cycling that would take cyclist somewhere. Parents would love this safe travel for their children All for the best bang of our tax bucks.
