The garage will be located the southeast corner of Main and Sixth streets on the site of an existing City parking lot, the release said.
The site was chosen to address the limited public parking and growing retail development on the northeast side of downtown, to provide an alternative to on-street parking on residential streets in the area and to fit the $5 million budget for the project, the release said.
Based on the demand indicated by the parking study conducted in 2015, the city plans to build a 200-space parking garage—a net increase of 150 spaces—at the Main and Sixth streets location, the release said. Construction on the project is set to start in 2020.
The city is seeking input through a public survey on the design and appearance of the downtown parking garage. The survey also seeks input on preferences for project elements, such as landscaping, public art and facade materials for the garage, the release said. The online survey is open through Oct. 30, it said.
Go to surveymonkey.com/r/GeorgetownParking to take the survey.
The results will be used to guide decisions about the design and appearance of the downtown public parking garage, the release said.
