More of Boone's new "planned development" moving forward.
This one across from the Holmes Convocation Center ... on slightly over 1/2 acre, some 24 efficiency apartments with only 22 allotted parking places for those residents, plus commercial space with only six allotted parking places.
Does that make sense to you?
What commercial business would rent where there is no parking for potential customers? Renters in 24 apartments are going to take more than those 22 spaces. That's guaranteed. Workers in the businesses -- if there are businesses willing to rent there -- will take whatever is left over. There is no across-the-street or down-the-street parking.
The Town Council's "cover" for this development nonsense is pushing for a "walkable town." Not sure how we get there by allowing mega-developments get away without providing parking spaces. The reality: everybody (and his/her dog) has a car, and they're gonna park it somewhere.
