Land planner Mike Covelli is representing several developers who want to build in Delray's central business district, but can't do it without providing parking spaces. Mr. Covelli will try to convince city staffers that car lifts are a viable solution for Delray.
How does it work? A parking attendant would park & retireve the cars. This should be an interesting discussion. Is there a "real" parking problem in Delray or just a perceived one? I have heard lengthy discussions from both sides. Personally, I never have trouble finding a spot. It might take a few mintes & be a block away - but to me that's part of being "downtown". Getting out, walking around, enjoying the atmosphere.
Also, free public parking recently opened on SE 1st Ave & an additional parking garage will open later this year on the north side of Atlantic.
So, do car lifts fit Delray Beach the "Village by the Sea"?
