    How about thinking up clever names for the ‘east side’ Water Street parking Lot and the ‘west side’ Water Street Parking lot which distinguish each of them from a wayfinding point of view, both for us locals, and for the many visitors we get (and hope to get) downtown. And how about a new concept for snow removal, the current giant machine which worked over the ‘west side’ parking lot area from 3-4:30 am Monday scalped the new sod off the boulevard in front of Jerry’s Hair Shop – and it was some of the scarce green space left after the City let MNDOT design this key area of our Downtown. Were all in this together…

    Dean –

    I’ve always been told that the westside parking was called the Horseshoe Lot.

    It kind of has that nice James Gang ring to it.
