McEuen Boat-Trailer Compromise

Huckleberries has learned that the McEuen Design Team will propose a solution to the parking problem for boat trailers in the new McEuen Field — a compromise that will provide parking almost as close as current lower lot on Third Street. In an interview moments ago, Dick Stauffer of the Design Team and Parks Director Doug Eastwood told Huckleberries that 30 to 32 slots for boat parking will be designed into what is now the northern edge of the current main Third Street parking lot (across Front Avenue from the future two-level parking garage that will include one level below the street). The compromise also includes three handicap spots for boat-trailer parking near the boat launch. Overflow boat parking will still be included behind City Hall. Some boaters had objected to the original plan to put all trailer parking behind City Hall. Now, there are 48 trailer spots in the lower parking lot for boats.
