Neighbors for the Preservation of the Neighborhood, a steering committee in opposition to a proposed parking lot at Highland Park Presbyterian Church, has this to say about Wednesday’s meeting at HPPC.
Some new dirt, lifted from the blog link above:
Church representatives discussed pursuing one of the alternatives originally suggested by neighbors 18 months ago: working with the City of UP to allow parking (on Sunday mornings only) along curbs that are currently marked ‘No Parking.’ The neighbors strongly support this idea and offered to go with HPPC representatives to meet with City officials regarding this request.
The discussion then turned to the underground parking alternative that [UP Planning and Zoning Commission] Chairman [Bob] West asked the church to investigate after its initial August 10 presentation. HPPC has done some preliminary investigation into an underground parking lot and showed neighbors some early sketches of the plan.
…While the neighbors are not convinced that HPPC “needs” a parking lot at all … they are willing to compromise with the idea of an underground lot …
So. Who’s going to the P&Z meeting on Oct. 12?
