A special committee established by
Mayor Louis Belcher reported to City
Council last night that the city needs an
additional 1,100 to 1,300 parking spaces
immediately to solve a critical parking
shortage in the city's downtown shop-
ping and business district.
The committee recommended that
the city construct three new parking
structures in the downtown area,
making it easier for shoppers and
residents to find parking spaces and
encouraging downtown retailers to
remain in the area.
"PARKING IN the downtown area is
critically short," warned committee
member John Swisher. "The existing
parking system is at capacity."
Swisher said adequate parking would
help keep the downtown area alive and
economically sound. "It attracts
business and housing and keeps
existing business from moving out," he
said. "It can be a catalyst for develop-
Many retailers have moved to Briar-
wood, Arborland, and other outlying
areas because parking is provided,
The committee recommended the
city build three parking ramps, one on,
E. Washington St. near Thano's Lam-
plighter, another on S. Ashley St., and a
third on the current public library lot
near the intersection of William and
Fifth Streets. Since additional land
would be needed to construct the lots on
S. Ashley and E. Washington the com-
mittee recommended the city begin
immediate attempts to acquire that

about 500 cars, according to committee

Council reaction was mostly
favorable. Councilman E. Edward
Hood (R-4th Ward) called the proposal
"very bold. You have some firm
recommendations," he said.
Councilman Earl Greene (D-2nd
Ward) was uncertain how the proposals
would fit into the city's overall
development plan. "The question isn't
whether this should be done, but how to
do it," Greene said.
Recommendations for financing the
project range from increasing parking
fees to tax increment financing. Council
woman Leslie Morris (D-2nd Ward) ex-
pressed concern about financing. She
suggested a ballot proposal to deter-
