A legislative commission began looking Wednesday into whether building a parking garage adjacent to the Garrahy Judicial Complex on Dorrance Street would be a useful public project.
Garages are easy to build, going up Erector set fashion in months, but expensive — from $30,000 to $35,000 per space, he noted.
“They don’t support themselves out of the gate,” [I-195 Redevelopment District Commission chairman Colin] Kane said.
So it sounds like Kane is setting up the expectation that the public will have to subsidize this parking. GrowSmartRI tweeted:
Unfortunate that there was no mention of mass transit in this discussion. http://t.co/CEzJmMZLsg
