Add parking at F Street lot

By
From page A6 | July 11, 2013 |

Change can be difficult for all of us but particularly in Davis, when it concerns trees and concrete. But change is going to come right up and slap us in the face.

Chancellor Linda Katehi has a plan for 2020. It involves 5,000 more students and 300 faculty and more staff. Among many questions is where are they going to park in our wonderful downtown? Did anyone see the streets of Davis during graduation? All those poor folks circling and circling while trying to get to reservations and ceremonies on time. I was downtown on a regular Sunday afternoon several months ago and it was simply a zoo.

For me, the obvious place for new parking besides a second story down at the train station is the F Street lot between Third and Fourth streets. I do not favor businesses on the first of three floors: I favor handicap parking. Anyone who says a parking lot would be an eyesore has not seen the murals in town nor the works of several very-skilled mosaic artists.

I love bikes and ride a bike but when my family comes to town we need to drive. Senior parents and friends, mothers and babies and visiting conference attendees all need to drive and park. I hope this issue is on some committee’s agenda. If we don’t start to act, 2020 will come and we will still be spinning our steering wheels.
