Interesting information in this Star News article. A lot of different opinions. I would maintain that lighting on side streets has to be improved in an aesthetically pleasing way. Residents (housing and apartments) as well as patrons are still going to park on side streets. For one, it's free and is better access to the businesses in general. Chances are, the parking garage will allow for a greater amount of people to patronize Broad Ripple. Which will increase revenues of business and in turn will increase tax dollars to the City of Indianapolis. Currently, Broad Ripple is a $75-80M a year business. And business is down up to 20% at different shops and businesses. Think of the tax dollars that are currently being lost.
