Chamber Boosts West Side Parking Deck
The Grand Traverse County Board of Commissioners last week reversed an earlier vote on a state environmental clean-up loan, a decision that will allow the City of Traverse City to move ahead with a public parking deck at 145 West Front Street downtown.
"The Chamber and its members worked hard to convince county officials that moving ahead with this environmental clean-up loan is key to the city proceeding with long-planned and much-needed public parking facilities on West Front Street," said Kent Wood, director of government relations for the Chamber. "This is a critical project to boost economic development at the west end of downtown. We appreciate the county's participation and thank our members who voiced support for it to the county commissioners."
