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.

The Quincy Park Board of Commissioners is now accepting applications for the position of Executive Director.
 
Executive Director Ed Seger announced in February he was leaving sometime this year. He has been executive director since March 2012 and served as Director of Parks for 12 years before that. Seger is leaving because his wife accepted a job in another city. 
 
The seven member board is responsible for the selection of the next Executive Director, and is not limiting prospective candidates to those with park and recreation experience.
 
Interested applicants are asked to visit www.quincyparkdistrict.com to download an Application Packet and for more information on application procedures, important dates and a job description.
 
Application deadline is July 3, 2014.  The Board will confidentially review all applications on July 9, 2014, in closed session.
 
For more information on the Executive Director Search, you can contact the Board at ExecutiveDirectorSearch@quincyparkdistrict.com.
