curious if anyone has anything newsworthy to share from the open house last night. All the info is online, and it appears as though it was just a consultation meeting, but any tidbits would be cool.

Ryan, I'm curious as to where you expect street parking to be located if the LRT uses Main Street? In looking at the route, I think your idea would result in less opportunity for parking, not more. If the LRT runs on Main they will have a similar format as the current proposal for King - LRT in the median with one lane of traffic in each direction. King Street would become two-way and I presume would be 2-lanes in each direction. There's no way the city would convert both streets to two-way and limit vehicle traffic to one lane each way on both streets in order to accommodate parking along King.

Unless I'm missing something, it seems as though running the LRT on King would result in more opportunity for street parking, not less.
