This expansion of the downtown led to increased congestion; often, parking became difficult to find, especially on weekends. One proposal to remedy this was the building of a parking garage in a current parking-lot area; some very vocal residents, however, opposed this as a waste of tax dollars.

The parking structure was paid for by a grant from the state for the advancement of public transportation. (Increase the amount of spaces available for the train comuters therefore increasing the use of the train.)
