Lack of Parking in Ann Arbor

This article discusses the shortage of parking in Ann Arbor. This is a huge problem because there has been “an incredible increase in both number of companies and employees in the past 10 years,” and therefore parking spaces are filling up. Recently, the city council proposed a bill that would expand a city-owned parking deck in order to give more Ann Arbor employees parking spaces. Unfortunately, this bill was rejected. This can be a major problem for these employees who may need to find an alternate source of transportation to work if they cannot find anywhere to park their cars. I believe that building more parking spaces can lead to even more business growth in Ann Arbor. Is it worth it to spend tax dollars on parking? Do you believe that more parking can help promote business growth?
