Plymouth: $360,000 for proposed parking plan design to bring 1/3 of needed spots

Plymouth Selectmen gave the green light to the PGDC –the town’s parking plan managers—to begin the design process for a parking garage behind Memorial Hall..

John Burke, Project Manager for the garage, talks about the specifics of what the Board approved unanimously Tuesday night:

“…to proceed with preliminary design on a multi-modal center that includes a parking facility, a transit center and a visitor service center.”

The preliminary design will be ready for spring town meeting, but it will be expensive. Town Manager Melissa Arrighi explains how this will be funded:

“The $360,000 preliminary design: GATRA is going to pay 80% of that. The remaining sixty thousand will be divided between two entities: the town of Plymouth will contribute thirty thousand dollars after a town meeting vote, and the other thirty thousand dollars will come directly from the PGDC-which does not need town meeting approval.”

The parking garage would add about 200 spaces—that’s about a third of the 600 spaces estimated to be needed at the height of the season.
