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, - both of which would cost more than $8 million to construct.
The issue has been with residents near the station saying it would adversely impact them while others, particularly those who commute on the train, say it is needed.
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.
