A group of local residents and business people are trying to talk the City out of an ill considered plan to tear down a downtown Santa Monica parking structure, and replace it with "affordable Housing." The group says it has gathered 5000 signatures on a petition.
The group's press release reads as follows: "This morning a group of Santa Monica residents and business owners delivered individual packages to Mayor Sue Himmelrich, members of City Council and the City Manager, containing a copy of the Petition to Save Parking Garage 3, which has garnered 5,000 signatures in just the last 4 months.
"Organizers are now focusing on Santa Monica residents, most of whom have expressed frustration with the City Council, and are against demolishing Parking Garage 3, which is located in the heart of the Promenade and Downtown area.
"An additional 5,000 more signatures are expected by the end of December. That total number would equate to 13% of Santa Monica's registered voters."
