IOP Parking Garage
The Post and Courier reported this week that IOP has been approached by an out of state company interested in possibly building a parking garage for beach visitors.
Any mention of a parking garage in the past has been dismissed in a nanosecond by virtually every resident of the IOP.
But think about this for 2 nanoseconds: Would you be in favor of such a building if it eliminated all other daytripper parking on the island?
I don’t know if that is feasible, lawful, whatever. But if it could be done, well, what would you think then?
Hey, now. Just discovered this fine piece of work.
Most impressive & valuable – pls do stay at it.
Thank you, Fish
A nonstarter, in my opinion. Do we really want to eliminate beach visitors from the majority of the island? Spread it out I say.
What if a garage generated enough money for the city to run a trolley up and down Ocean and Palm Blvd.? My point is this: Instead of instinctively rejecting this (or any idea), give the whole idea careful thought. After that, it may indeed, be something we don’t want, but I think we need look outside the box and start being proactive rather reactive as we have been for 50 years.
