(December 13, 2010) Frisco residents and visitors coming to City Hall and the Frisco Public Library will find parking near the building much easier beginning tomorrow, December 14. The municipal center parking garage opens first thing Tuesday morning approximately one year after the prior parking lot was closed to allow for construction of a five-story garage.
“We want to thank library patrons and those who visited Frisco City Hall and Frisco Square businesses for their patience while the garage was under construction,” said Ron Patterson, Assistant City Manager. “We believe the convenience of having quadrupled the parking space next to the building makes up for some of the growing pains experienced during the construction process.”
Parking is free in the municipal center parking garage, which houses 504 parking spaces. Adjacent surface lots provide an additional 70 parking spots. The prior parking lot had 141 parking spaces. The first and second floors of the garage are reserved for the public. The public is allowed to park anywhere in the structure if parking is not available on the first two levels. Handicap parking is available on all five levels as well as an additional eight spaces in the front of the George Purefoy Municipal Center.
The driveway behind City Hall and Frisco Public Library will also return to two-way traffic flow beginning December 14 allowing vehicle access from the east and west to the after-hours drop boxes for utility payments and library books.
