|Via the Weekly Volcano:
Mello and Boe: “Just what Tacoma needs, another parking lot”
"Here we have a site that has alley access that's right off the 705 exit, (with) an entrance onto 705 a half block away, a light rail station a block away, a convention center and a hotel," observes Boe. "This place is screaming out for development. This is an urban design crime."

|The city manager answers to the city council.
Criticism of the parking lot more properly belongs to the city council than to the city manager. If we are to learn anything from this event we will have to learn the names of the council members who voted aye. IMO

|fredo, your dream of stacking the city council with Tea Party is just that, a dream, not going to happen in Tacoma. The city council's response to Eric Anderson was, "You're fired".|
by NineInchNachos on 7/21/2011 @ 7:56am
|Thanks Marty, Boe and Mello for fighting Urban Design Crime!|

|The council rejected Anderson's proposal to waste $700,000 state development money on a parking lot? I wasn't aware of that, sorry crenshaw.|

|UPDATE: I spoke with City of Tacoma parking manager David Carr this morning and the item will be removed from the July 26 agenda and will likely appear on the Aug. 2 agenda, after the city's parking facilities manager returns from vacation. If you hurry, you can still see the supporting docs here (pages 10-13).|
Also, he confirmed that as per Dick McKinley's memo included in the request for resolution, Republic Parking Northwest receives a management fee of 1.5 percent of net revenue at the lot. Of the approximately $60,000 in anticipated yearly revenue, $900 represents Republic's management fee of 1.5% of net revenues.

|The lot is restricted to DaVitaistas during daytime and free evenings and weekends, how will it generate 60,000? Out if thin air?|
by The Jinxmedic on 7/21/2011 @ 12:00pm
|My proposed parking fee is $750.00 for the first two hours, and $1500.00 for all day on weekends. These parking fees would be assessed much like a fine, with the bill being sent to the registered owner of the motor vehicle. That should help generate the appropriate revenue.|

| "Of the approximately $60,000 in anticipated yearly revenue, $900 represents Republic's management fee of 1.5% of net revenues." TDI
They're going to send somebody down from their office to collect the cash proceeds and they're going to provide this service for less than 3 dollars a day? I don't believe it.
Who has the keys to the cash collection box and how do the taxpayers know the cash is being counted correctly?
by cisserosmiley on 7/21/2011 @ 3:19pm
|$900...thats chicken feed...eric anderson made $900 every day|

|Tacoma City Council is scheduled to vote Tuesday on a purchase resolution that would direct an additional $90,000 toward a new parking lot that was recently completed on the former Sauro's Cleanerama site in downtown Tacoma.
The TDI posts make your Tacomics seem mild in comparison!
by Crenshaw Sepulveda on 7/25/2011 @ 1:00pm
|You have to watch out when they say "net" revenue. How big is the net and who's being caught in it. I'm sure it is "net" revenue after expenses by Republic. I'm betting that Republic ends up with a nice pile of money if this lot generates any net revenues or not.|
by fredo on 7/25/2011 @ 2:24pm
|but but but Crenshaw...the representative from the city of Tacoma said Republic will make $900 per year. If you don't start towing the party line we will have to place you in the re-education camp again.|

|That's the deal with public art.
Once it's out in the elements
it's out of your hands and
into the care of the Universe
Consider it ascended
into the heavens
of our collective memory.
Truly a great work. Hats off to you, Mr. Anderson.

|Love the sign! You should make another one for the Luzon site.|

|That's an AWESOME sign! |
Jesse - I spotted this the other day at the Luzon site:
As the Captain above says, once it's out there, it's out there and unfortunately stuff hasn't been lasting very long these days.

|If one uses a few hundred pounds of cement to keep one's art in place, it'll last longer.
Not indefinitely, but certainly more than just a couple of hours.
