Parking ramp vote back to city council
Placeholder Image
MONROE - Mayor-elect Louis Armstrong is wasting no time in pushing the Monroe Common Council to make a final decision on the controversial downtown municipal parking ramp Tuesday - the same night he is sworn into office. Tuesday's agenda includes an action item that asks council representatives to decide whether to "raze the current parking ramp and replace with a surface lot." The lot would hold 72 parking stalls, which according to a parking study conducted over summer months by Rich & Associates in November, will provide sufficient parking for the short-term future downtown.
