Governor Mark Warner met with Senator Creigh Deeds and Delegate Mitch Van Yahres regarding UVa’s planned Ivy Road parking garage. Deeds and Van Yahres both favor increased local control of UVa’s growth, and sought assistance in improving relations between state institutions and localities. The Governor is concerned about setting a precedent by getting involved in a parking garage dispute, and it’s unlikely that he’ll become publicly involved in resolving the dispute. Bob Gibson has the story in today’s Progress.
One thought on “Warner Enters Garage Fray”
As time for construction draws near, it is worrisome that the University has failed to explain how the garage will work. To get acceptable results for its traffic study, UVA had to assume that only 175 cars will depart between 5 and 6 p.m. What happens if more than that number leave? Also, The garage has only one entrance/exit. How can they possibly move 1240 cars in and out for events at the Arena?
