Royal Oak complaining Show more
The problem is that yes, there are 1,000 spots, but:
a) We live in Michigan, and we get lovely winter storms
b) The parking structures that the mayor is proposing folks use aren't done yet.
c) The one lot that adjoined the library and downtown is being replaced with a large office building, and not returning any of the spots.
d) Parking garages are an eyesore in Royal Oak.
On the upside, when downtown isn't "cool" any more the property values will decrease.
