This artist’s rendering shows the floor plan of the proposed expansion to the Lawrence Public Library.

I'm still struggling with how the Lawrence Public library needs so much parking. A rough count on Google Maps of the Topeka public library shows it's parking lot to be about 200 spots, and roughly half empty the day Google was snapping photos. The library in Topeka according to the numbers on their web site serves 3000+ people on an average day. Lawrence serves less than half that number of people (2009=9805/week) on an average day. So how can a library serving 50% fewer people need 25% more parking, much less 70 additional spots at $15,000 each.
They'll be needed after the city givves away all the existing parking lots to developers.
The parking garage is an efficiency issue. There may be a few additional spaces, but that end of the downtown needs spaces. I can really understand all of the developer bashing. A health downtown is good for the city. Maybe those of you that have a problem with a thriving downtown can move to McLouth.
I'm all for additional parking downtown. Let the developers fund it not the taxpayers!
