Georgetown (Williamson County) — The city is taking comments on where to locate a Downtown Parking Garage project that could cost between $7 million to $22 million.

Interested residents can provide comments via a digital survey until Dec. 31 on three sites that the city has evaluated for the project.

The city has been working to evaluate and address parking concerns for the downtown area for several years and City Council identified three primary locations for a potential new garage location at its Nov. 9 meeting.

The prospective sites are located at Tamiro Plaza, 6th Street and Main Street intersection and at the 9th Street and Main Street intersection.
