Parking garage project opponents say they will file petition
MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — Opponents of a proposed parking garage planned for Vermont’s capital city say they will file a petition for Town Meeting Day.
Notice of the petition was first filed in early November with the Development Review Board. The Times Argus reports signers of the petition include many prominent residents of Montpelier. They are concerned about the size and cost of the garage.
The planned garage is part of an 81-room hotel project behind the Capitol Plaza Hotel & Conference Center on State Street.
Opponents are asking the City Council to withhold spending of a $10.5 bond until there is a commitment to provide sufficient remote parking spaces and transportation to Montpelier’s downtown during construction.
