I have to side with King at the moment. The consultants identified higher economic development potential on King St. and have determined that the effects of lost parking can be mitigated. Street parking is absolutely important and beneficial but LRT is so much more so that if the two are in conflict, LRT wins.

Either way the line will pass by abandoned buildings and empty lots. King Street will be a quicker win for revitalization because of the amount of intact buildings. There will be an immediate psychological impact with LRT running past downtown landmarks such as Gore Park and Jackson Square which already enjoy high pedestrian traffic.
