Construction of the new parking lot on Front Street between Cedar and Stafford streets is a very worthwhile investment for Downtown Washington. Still to be approved by the city council is lighting, which is a small expenditure in this major project.
The city is using revenue from the Downtown Tax Increment Financing (TIF) district to pay for the concrete and asphalt work, which is a $120,289 expenditure that includes fencing along the railroad tracks on the north side of the lot. Parking lot lighting would add about $10,000 to the project cost. That money also would come from TIF revenue.
