I have to agree with Haynes take on this. The issues of downtown parking are FAR more complex than merely building another garage in what some may consider an unused block as a knee jerk reaction to TVA's clambering. And the issues deserve FAR more discussion in more detail than what occurred at the last Council meeting.
At a time when retail life is beginning to expand beyond Gay Street and Market Square, it is absolutely premature, if not foolish, to write off a whole block (as Branscom has unwisely done). There would certainly be nothing wrong with garage parking in that location, but only if it was part of a larger residential/retail complex that adds to the aesthetic of downtown and allows for downtown's growth in that direction.
