Garfield Parking & Landscape

Description

Completion of the land acquisition process is a recommended first step before expanding the Garfield Campus. The acquisition process involves purchasing properties adjacent to the existing campus and surveying the existing conditions. These important steps will set the stage for successful redevelopment of the property.

As a long-term solution to address parking needs, the idea of a parking expansion is being explored.
