Do have a comment or a complaint about parking?

It’s Harrisburg—so it’s likely that you do.

On Tuesday, you’ll have the rare opportunity to tell the system operators how you feel during a public meeting of the Park Harrisburg Advisory Board.

The board was established as part of Harrisburg’s complex parking agreement, which leased the city parking system for 40 years to SP+, known locally as Park Harrisburg.

Under the terms of the agreement, the board is supposed to hold meetings public updates and comments, though one hasn’t occurred in more than a year.

At the meeting, the asset manager, Trimont Real Estate Advisors, will review of 2018 operations and capital improvements, provide a project financial report and state 2019 objectives, including current operating budget and Capital Improvement Plan, according to a statement by the Harrisburg Regional Chamber & CREDC.

Afterwards, both committee members and the public will have an opportunity to comment, said the statement.

The meeting will take place on Tuesday, May 28, at 6 p.m. in the Crowne Plaza Ballroom, 23 S. 2nd St., Harrisburg. Free parking will be available in the Market Square Garage, and street parking is free after 5 p.m.
