We re Happy to say once More that there is no truth. Toby via. D. Rexroad any Rumor to that effect. It always startles us per haps it should t any More when rumours of this nature begin to make the rounds. We be heard them a half dozen times in the last 16 months of publishing and we guess that the Best Way to explode them is just to keep on putt ing out a paper each week. Mainly rumours of this kind represent the Wishful think ing of those who feel for one reason or another that it would be Nice if the citizen times did fail. We Don t happen a citizen s viewpoint parking luxury or necessity was to have been the same As constructed for less than per parking stall and the Trees could be retained. Week have Cost of that Job came in plans drawn up for an under at about per stall and ground parking lot on May s he Council turned it Down As obviously such a Price Island Between City Hall and expensive. Their decision would make the convenience the court House. The reason was a sound one and they relatively inexpensive. From for such a facility would be Wele praised for it. A strictly practical standpoint for since that time there has then this is not Only bother business to con been no increased demand for but a better one. Lle Island. The a parking facility of this that practicality10 estimated at neither have any other is not always the factors entered the picture though we must Loop which Are significant enough to still another possible warrant such a reversal of solution to consider. No Park their previous decision. Ing at All on the Island imm e one official in reference mediately comes to mind. To the underground parking solution of course to provide people wit duct on the Price tag is to 148 to per stall. Parking facilities Are no minor expense item.

Criticism of open forum and. The manner in which it will treat further Reader communications on the subject. In essence the Gazette has said that letters from its readers concerning the Road Way will be published if. This nature of travels on a two Way to the editor this is a letter of protest. Course Street. Our concern with the ounces policy of the Gazette in if the Lack of parking space on the Island is indeed a parking space and these two problem one other solution facilities along with others would be to convert the Plaza have filled that need. Into a parking lot at ground the question now is is it level. Granted this idea has but neither would hence be provided. Much trouble Park in the ramp and ack Oss the Bridge. Three Hundred thousand dollars Worth a Hundred dollars Worth five dollars Worth this gives us three possible a i solutions to consider. Surely there Are others.

As for the Cost of an above ground parking lot on the is land it could probably be one question How much. Money should we pay for such a convenience this is the real problem that the Public and the City Council has to contend with. I Hope that when the answer is found it has a Price tag measurably smaller than a to bit of a million that these qualifications will be enforced zealously by the Gazette editorial staff who have already cooed their approval of the project. Applying this criterion it would be less than hazardous to predict that letters concerning the Roadway will reach the dizzying Heights of the people s forum Only if a.
