3. Please provide a short, non-technical description of the project, no more than 2-4 sentences.
The project calls for the expansion of the public parking lot at the northwest corner of State Routes 48 and 725 by constructing a new abutting lot at 55/59 W. Franklin Street (SR725). The filling of this “gap” would connect two existing public parking lots and allow the City to further enhance public safety by modifying vehicular access along this portion of W. Franklin Street. The project will benefit additional local businesses and the surrounding historic and cultural sites in the vicinity.

Community Impact and Job Creation
40. What is the community issue or need that your project will address?
This project is a proposed expansion of public parking areas in the City’s historic architectural preservation district. Over the past decade, the City has invested more than $2 million in the construction and maintenance of public parking facilities in the district. These parking facilities provide safe and convenient parking and vehicular access control for the public. The parking areas support local businesses in the district, as well as several historical sites and a community theatre operated by Washington Township. The project would move the City one step closer to providing safer vehicular access controls on W. Franklin Street by allowing for future access to a signalized intersection at W. Franklin Street and Virginia Avenue to the west. Several curb cuts in the area that do not meet current access management control design standards will be able to be modified or removed.
41. What is the measurement that will be used to determine whether the project was a success?
A reduction in vehicle accidents in the vicinity and increases in business occupancy in the area.
42. If the project receives funding and is completed, how many DIRECT NEW jobs do you anticipate being CREATED within the next two years?
None

The provision of safe public parking in the City's downtown area is critical for area businesses. As some of the businesses grow in this area of the City, more parking will need to be provided to service their employees and customers. The estimate reflects a conservative number in consideration of the number of businesses in the vicinity. There are numerous businesses in the district that have voice support for additional public parking in the area.
