Design competition for a downtown "Parking Solution"

There is no reason that building an underground lot or above ground structure should cost the merchants anything. The land involved is very valuable and if the City puts it up for a long term lease to the best bidder who will build and operate a pay parking facility this could be done at very low cost to the city.

Palo Alto is just completing a design competition for a new bicycle bridge over 101 - they got some great designs at zero cost to the city. Why not have a design competition for a really exciting “Parking Solution” for downtown Menlo Park? A “ Parking Solution” design competition because there should be minimal constraints on what such a solution might involve so that we can tap into some real creativity.
