New parking for Vt. workers in Montpelier

Posted: Updated:

State workers in Montpelier will soon have access to more parking in the Capital City.

The Carr Lot, named after Allen Carr, which is empty now, is being leased by the state for up to three years.

The city of Montpelier does have a plan to develop the lot as a possible transit center or office building. By leasing out the lot, the state gets needed parking while the city moves forward on plans on the development.

"When the Legislature is in session there is always a need for more parking, and it's being exacerbated this year by Irene. So even greater than usual there is a parking crunch," Montpelier City Manager Bill Fraser said.

The lot, which is located on the east side of Taylor Street, is approximately an acre large and can fit around 100 vehicles.
