Gig Harbor Adds New Public Parking Lot

Gig Harbor, Wash. – December 2, 2011 – Just in time for the Christmas rush...

A little more than a year ago, City Council approved the purchase of the commercial parcel adjacent to the Tides Tavern. By combining it with the City's existing public right-of-way, 30 finished parking stalls and 2 new ADA accessible stalls are open to the public. The added parking makes downtown shopping more convenient and is expected to bring a boost to the commercial district.

The Mayor's commitment to expand downtown parking includes his promise to finally construct a Fishermen's Pier for the Maritime City. A state grant will fund construction of the Pier in 2012.
