Commuter Parking Deck Construction to Start in March

The City Council is set to OK an agreement with the First Baptist Church for temporary commuter parking and a "park-and-ride" program similar to what was done when the lot was under construction.

Get ready for a little controlled chaos come March, when the city and Metra begin work on a third deck for the commuter parking garage.

The Geneva City Council will vote Tuesday on a lease agreement with the First Baptist Church, 2300 South St., which will add 91 spaces for park-and-ride purposes. The city is offering $1,700 a month to lease the space.

Construction of the third level of the parking garage is expected to start in March and conclude in September.

The city also will use the baseball parking lot adjacent to the city's Public Works Building. The $3.5 million project is being funded by a Metra grant agreement, according to the Tuesday, Jan. 22, City Council agenda packet.
