Our view: Downtown vision deserves support

(Continued)

The council has a chance to move the project forward at its meeting next week, when the issue of declaring the parking lot surplus is expected to be on the agenda. It seems like a simple decision, one that would spur a $45 million investment in the city and would not lead to a loss of parking spaces.

Declaring the property surplus would be only the first step in a long process that allows ample opportunity for the public’s input through the planning and zoning boards.

We agree with Turiel, who said “this is the kind of development Salem is looking for.”
