Restripe Current Parking Lot (Widen and Angle) ≈ 35k

Community members have expressed the desire to restripe the current parking lot so as to widen the parking spaces to minimize the incidence of door dings and make parking easier. The working group decided to leave this project off the list of recommendations for the immediate use of the allocated bond funds for two primary reasons.

First, widening the existing parking spaces will reduce the total number of spaces for the immediate timeframe, exacerbating the current challenges at peak usage. Second, the current parking allotment is very likely to be modified when development commences on the commercial parcel at the SW corner of the property. At that time we expect to modify our access and parking arrangement. (See the post regarding Additional Parking for more information.) Finally, the cost of this restriping is likely to be much lower if done in concert with striping of newly installed parking areas, but even independently is such that it could realistically be implemented with other existing funding mechanisms.
