Parking garage update set

BAR HARBOR — Results of a community survey about a proposed parking garage for the “backyard parking lot” behind the West Street Hotel will be presented at a special Town Council meeting March 10.

Louis Ajamil of Bermello, Ajamil and Associates will share results of the survey as well as an implementation plan for the parking garage.

Councilors approved $10,000 in October for B&A to conduct the community meeting and survey, and draft the implementation plan for the project.

Ocean Properties Ltd., which owns the hotel and would finance and own part of the proposed structure, agreed to pay the other half of the $20,000 study.

A public meeting was held in November to present and gather feedback. B&A circulated online and paper surveys about parking challenges and about the proposed garage.
