City leaders are set to unveil their plans for improving parking downtown.
Officials are under the gun to get plans in motion since they're anticipating traffic to increase downtown when Harrison Square and the new Parkview Field open next year.
A consulting group developed recommendations based on a study of current on-street and private parking situations in the downtown area.
Under the gun -- gee, do ya think? Harrison Square is under construction. I know this because I see it whenever I crawl up Jefferson Boulevard on whatever bike path they've still got open on that day. And now -- just now -- they're making plans to account for changing traffic and parking needs? This town is being run by geniuses!
