There is quite a bit of parking downtown. We are just spoiled here in Quincy because it is all free and most people think it is a crime to have to walk more than half a block anywhere.

Revitalization of the downtown area is supposed to bring in more visitors and more spending...therefore more sales tax $$. So the city does get some extra $$ from that. And when the TIF expires the added property value will lower tax rates for the rest of us. That's the idea of it.

There are actually ways to create "hard" parking that has grass or other vegetation growing through it. Menards even carrys one version. This allows you to have parking that doesn't look like another black ocean and it doesn't turn into mud with every rain like a lawn would. I think this type of "green" parking lot would be the most suitable use of this property. You need the extra parking…

I'm still waiting for someone to tell me what's in it for the city? What does the city get financially from the project? The empty lot is not costing us anything now. We have money for the Hobart people but we can't even keep the trees alive in downtown Quincy.
