COVID HAS TAKEN AWAY AT LEAST 100+ PARKING SPACES FOR OUTSIDE DINING … so how big a deal is it to remove them permanently as long as we have parking APPS and methods of moving visitors efficiently and for free from parking to shopping/dining venues

It’s been over an hour and we have 11 slides to go. Perhaps in the future ww could share the slide deck BEFORE the meeting, so that the presenters do not have to drill down. I will come back and scrub through the recording. Too long!
Mark Mhley
01:12:07
Thank’s for your feedback , Robert.
Judy Olson
01:15:17
Where will the Annapolis and Anne Arundel Visitors Center be relocated in this plan (currently in front of the Harbormaster building)? Will all of the existing boat slips on both sides of Ego Alley stay in place?
Lise Dandrea
01:15:40
What is the current capacity of Hillman?
Annie Hillary
01:15:51
The idea for making the Gorman Street areas as multi-use area good. I also encourage the City to give consideration in the design for the Hillman Parking to include an option for a roof top garden. This additional open space which will enhance the livability of Annapolis. Say yes to a roof top park on Hillman Garage. Activate the ground level and the top level!
Mark Mhley
01:17:32
Judy, Lisa, Annie, got it.
Marty Etzel
01:22:05
got a q
Rick Lober
01:22:50
Will the water taxi and tour boats still be at City Dock?
Judy Olson
01:24:57
What is happening with Blonder’s proposal to build a “boutique hotel” in the City Dock area? How is that going to impact your plans?
Lise Dandrea
01:26:17
How and when will questions we sent prior to this meeting be answered?
Annie Hillary
01:27:15
A great story is how people go to the top level of the Hillman Garage to view the Blue Angels. Another reason to think about a roof top park.
Rick Lober
01:31:34
If the water level will be 5 foot below the park and walkways (a good thing for flooding) - how will boaters get in an out of their boats - ramp down to a floating slip? What about bulkhead slips?
Carl Larkin
01:35:11
How will adjacent residential parking be protected?
Annie Hillary
01:35:39
So let’s also think about maybe dedicating some time to turn Main Street and/or Md Ave as a pedestrian mall. Seems that happened on Md Ave during cover.
Lise Dandrea
01:35:51
thank you Carl, I was going to ask that too
Annie Hillary
01:36:17
Afford it, look at the feasibility.
Lise Dandrea
01:37:39
Will there still be a park like walkway around the garage for pedestrians and dog walking?
Lise Dandrea
01:38:42
How will parking for delivery trucks be handled now, especially with adding more retail use to the base of the garage?
Annie Hillary
01:40:40
Roof top park, Do it now or it will never get done. Thank you for considering this idea. I believe it will be a longterm asset for the City.. We all know the benefits open space. I hope we don’t miss this opportunity.
Lise Dandrea
01:43:02
Will the height of the garage be the same or higher?
Carl Larkin
01:43:11
What is the risk sharing for damage to city streets?
Marty Etzel
01:44:23
Thanks Eivind,David, Mayor Buckley.
kate stillwell
01:45:21
If we look to move curbside dining to rooftop dining, we can get our parking spaces back AND increase restaurant seating with great harbor views
Marty Etzel
01:47:37
Kate I think a lot of rooftops have HVAC and also access issues but a good idea
Rick Lober
01:50:00
Will the garage include electric charging stations - essential for the future...
Lise Dandrea
01:53:21
I would like to be included in the conversations regarding resident parking
Elly Tierney
01:59:30
Perhaps good idea if Eileen or David explain the line of communication during construction.....to the residents. That's important to know.
Marty Etzel
02:08:22
thanks for update! Can't wait!
Annie Hillary
02:08:25
What you just said about the views from Hillman is the exact region to do a roof top garden on the garage. Please don’t miss this opportunity.
Mark Mhley
02:09:14
Elly passes that WORA members should become familiar with O-4-21 regarding medical cannabis: Medical Canibas legislation. It will effect Ward One. Here is legislation link to share with members.https://annapolismd.legistar.com/Legislation.aspx
Annie Hillary
02:09:34
Please show diversity in the people pictures for future presentation.
