The City of Georgetown is planning to build a public parking garage at the southeast corner of Main and Sixth streets on the site of an existing City parking lot. The site was selected to address the limited public parking and growing retail development on the northeast side of downtown, to provide an alternative to on-street parking on residential streets in this area, and to fit the $5 million budget for the project.
Based on demand identified in the parking study conducted in 2015, the City plans to build a 200-space parking garage, which is a net increase of 150 additional spaces, at the Main and Sixth street location. Construction on the project is set to start in 2020.
The City is seeking input through a public survey on the design and appearance of the downtown parking garage. The survey also seeks input on preferences for project elements such as landscaping, public art, and the facade materials for the garage. The online survey is open through Oct. 30.

Results of this survey will be used to guide decisions about the design and appearance of the downtown public parking garage.
