    It would seem that the city would invest some money into the arts or give reason to even have a parking deck. Shouldn’t the hotel that is coming pay for it’s own parking needs like most businesses? If it is for other reasons please give an example. What is going to bring people downtown? A few restaurants owned by the same 2 or 3 people? Why not get rid of the hostile city ordinance about food trucks. Oh yeah protecting those same 2 or 3 downtown restaurants. This city is a joke, wanting to be big and urban but trying to control it so only certain people can make it. Downtown needs some pubs, some live music, a comedy club and an entertainment venue. Until then its just a bunch of old bricks with a couple of places to eat dinner.
