Last Chance to View Parking Deck Options Tonight
$8 million Plans will be revealed again tonight at Town Hall.
Tonight is your last chance to review the conceptual drawings for two different proposals for a downtown parking deck.
The engineering and architecture firm hired to create conceptual plans for a parking deck at the Millburn Train Station will present those plans once more at a public hearing tonight (June 16) at 7:30 p.m. at Town Hall.
Tim Haahs Associates, which has offices in Pennsylvania, Florida, Georgia and New Brunswick, N.J, has previously presented two different plans -- both of which would cost more than $8 million to construct.
At a meeting in January, Township Committee member Robert Tillotson, who is on the commuter parking subcommittee, said that the 120-140 cars that are valet parked in the lot each day show there's a problem.
Parking at the station has been an issue for more than a decade, and a long-term solution is needed, Tillotson said then. Some say it could be alleviated by reconfiguring the spaces for more efficient use of the current lot. Others support a deck.
The meeting begins tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the Town Hall Committee meeting room.
