PO Parking Proposal 4

The City of Port Orchard has publicly presented six proposals for a future parking garage in the downtown area, and city officials want to know what you think of each one.

City officials, working with Art Anderson Associates, have determined that
at least 794 parking spaces (and as many as 1,172) would be needed if development proceeds as expected in the downtown core.

Here’s a brief description and before-and-after shots of one proposal (I’ve made separate entries for each to reduce download time). The artist’s renderings are just examples of what could be built in each location, said Patrick Vasicek of Art Anderson.

A fourth option is proposed for Bay between Kitsap and Cline streets. This
is another “hidden garage” design, with parking wrapped inside
residential/retail space. The three-level design could hold more than 300
cars. On the plus side, this design is cost-effective with easy access from
multiple directions, Art Anderson’s report states. But it is at a distance
from the downtown core and would have an affect on views and property values
on the south side of the site. A significant amount of property would have
to be acquired.

  1. This one looks reasonable. “Distance from the downtown core”? We’re talking two blocks here. Routing traffic in & out w/out conflicts on Bay Street would be the trick.
