Public Parking ground level… Free. Many major cities offer free public parking lots. GROUND LEVEL, not parking garages. Family and Senior friendly parking. Downtown Indy would be busy if parking would be easily available.
Monument Circle should always be closed to downtown through traffic. We should be able to walk around…on Sundays have art fairs, or, a jazz band. Food kiosks with tables and chairs for enjoyment. Family friendly….think family friendly.
Why would we want to go downtown to visit City Market if we have to have difficulty finding parking, and when we do it’s so expensive we don’t return. City Market should be open on weekends as a tourist destination too. Families would enjoy the variety of food and shopping opportunities. Again, free parking in close proximity. That courtyard in front of City Market should be parking. Safe type parking. Horseshoe style parking lot. One way.
Last, if you want public to enjoy all of downtown…a trolly would be great. Look around to downtown vicinity…..where are there buildings with street level parking that’s vacant off hours. That is available parking…Like the colleges and universities w trolly taking public downtown. “ PARKING”
