Re: "2nd mixed-use building in Proctor?" (TNT, 5-14).
I am appalled by Bill Evans and Erling Kuester's choice to add another six-story eyesore to the Proctor District. As a small business owner, Evans should understand the inconvenience this will bring about for parking.
I understand that occupants may have access to underground parking in the new mixed-use building, but only if they pay for it. It is difficult enough to find parking after 5 p.m. in the Proctor area, and I feel this will only add to the congestion.
Putting up yet another building that will displace an existing home and small business will ruin the quaint feel that Proctor has. I don't want to boycott Proctor District businesses, but it will be more difficult to shop with all the prospective added traffic.
