Its my understanding they plan on trying to pack a hotel in this area reducing the potential parking spaces even more. The newspaper reported this week that the conference center continues to lose money. This will continue as long as the parking is inadequate for guests. As a local citizen, I am upset about the veterans that were unable to attend the ceremony due to inadequate parking.
Inadequate parking is not a reason it continues to lose money. It's just not used enough. It has nothing to do with parking. There is ample parking available for what they need.

This HAS ALREADY gone away. It's a non-issue, but you, and ONLY YOU, keep crying about it. Pathetic.
Shouting down those with different opinions and being in denial of those with legitimate issues is no solution.

Since there was not ample and convenient parking for the relatively small Veterans Day ceremony and some veterans did not attend due to the lack of parking this tells me that if you fix the parking problem (more on site spaces) then larger events and meetings will be more attracted to use the facility. Like someone said----- limited parking limits customers.

A shortage of ample convenient parking leads to a shortage of visitors. Shops, hotels, movie theaters,and car dealers fled downtown more than 40 years ago due to the parking shortage.The old obsolete blighted buildings need to be replaced with additional parking. There are several that project negative image of this town.
I lived in El Dorado in the 1960's and witnessed this exodus. Parking should be a top priority if you want to make the most of people coming downtown. A parking deck or garage may not be the best choice depending upon its location and people's acceptance.

People that attend meetings or go to college are not "customers." Regardless, there is ample parking already available to suffice the needs of the El Dorado Conference Center.

Do you mean "shooting?" There is not a problem with parking for the conference center. It has easily accommodated over 800 people at certain times. It's not "opinion" when it can easily be proven, jackass.

But there was ample and convenient parking for the Veterans Day ceremony. Apparently, your inconsiderate dumbass that seems to have little respect for veterans did not attend. Go round up some "veterans" to tear down those fake barracades at the national memorials. Those lies seem to be more productive for you.

Boy, you're such a tough guy. You must be one of the those who slipped up when the planning was done. There's no other excuse for your increasingly hostile rantings as your missteps come to light.

That is a great point- I would add that the blighted,vacant buildings South of Labella be torn down and parking put there since it would be about as convenient to the Courthouse, shops and restaurants as you will come across. Also the statues and objects North of the Rialto should be relocated to an area that does not reduce convenient parking. Convenient, available parking is critical to growing downtown.

It would be a great point if it was needed. Fortunately, El Dorado is small enough to where one is not.

But there's plenty of surface parking for the Conference Center to accommodate over 800 attendants. It has happened: twice! Hence the lack of a problem of parking for the Conference Center.

He is talking about on site surface parking at the conference center---not parking on other people's property or in front of their businesses. Like mentioned several times. "limited parking limits customers".

If the city acquires the Townhouse property, this discussion might go away for a while.

Excellent point- It would also remove blighted, depreciated property from this area.

Lets hope El Dorado Festivals keeps parking as a top priority in their development plans.

Think about the stupid decisions in the past before you say yes to the forward tax.
