Enjoy the recent Garden Show at the OKC Fairgrounds? It was the last one with free parking!
According to reports, next year the Fairgrounds will start charging for parking. Ten dollars if you want to park on a paved space. More details are available here. But I have a few questions!
-I thought we tore down the race track in order to accommodate more parking-now you are going to charge us for it?
-I thought all the improvements made to the fairgrounds were taken care of through tax increases like MAPS and the hotel tax-now you are charging us again?
-the construction of plaza's to take the parking fees will cost 2.8 million; doesn't that defeat the purpose?
-how do I explain to future on air listeners who have won free tickets to an event at the Fairgrounds, it's not really a free pass because you'll have to pay 10 dollars to get in?
Yeah, this will make me think twice about attending and giving away tickets to Fairground events. What do you think?
