LCDC: Parking Garage Ready Nov. 19

The latest newsletter of the Lake City Development Corp. includes an update on the $20M McEuen Field expansion, a tribute to the late Jim Elder, preliminary thoughts re: reconstruction of the Four Corners (NW Blvd/Garden Avenue) area; and a profile of board Chairman Dave Patzer. The newsletter reports the new McEuen Field parking structure should be ready by Nov. 19:

Hundreds of cubic tons of dirt are currently being excavated from the northwest edge of McEuen Park to make way for the new parking structure, which will increase parking spaces at the parking area from 595 to 702. Team McEuen spokesman Phil Boyd, an engineer with Welch-Comer Engineers, said the parking structure is expected to be open by November 19. Meantime, the contractor, the city, and engineers are working closely to inform the public on street closures, brief utility interruptions, and other construction-related issues that may impact the public.
