Does Havre need another parking lot? You may have noticed that concrete and pavement has been removed from the vacant lots where the Midtown gas station used to stand. When the 1st street construction project was under way back a couple of years ago it was our understanding that the State of Montana had purchased these lots and was going to have them paved for a parking lot at their expense and then donate them to the City of Havre. Former Mayor Bob at that time said it “would be a great addition to Havre” and he wanted to put one of his beloved picnic tables and a couple of those red-white and blue benches for the convince of the tourists.
Does anyone know if this is still the plan? (Minus the red-white and blue we would assume?)
Surely there would be something better that these lots could be used for instead of a parking lot as the Town Square is only a block away. If we keep our noses to the grindstone we just may be able to get the whole town turned into one giant vacant parking lot.
