From Post Office to Parking Lot


Last August, the City of Collinsville received a petition signed by 28 Main Street business owners urging City officials to purchase the site of the former Post Office.  It was their hopes to utilize that space to create a public parking lot.  Just a few short months ago, the City purchased the property. 


Demolition, performed by the Collinsville Street Department, began the week of June 23rd.  Bids for the construction of the new 50-space parking lot were opened on June 20th.  The project was awarded to the lowest bidder, Hank’s Excavating.


Mayor John Miller is thrilled to see this go through, “This is an exciting opportunity to lessen the demand for parking spaces Uptown.  By creating 50 new spaces, we are able to offer a much needed convenience factor to the patrons of City Hall as well as to the businesses in the heart of the Uptown commercial district.”


Uptown Coordinator Leah Joyce is pleased that this type of project will assist in the revitalization of the Uptown area, “A new up-to-date parking lot like this will further our efforts in creating a more appealing Main Street for potential new businesses.”


The proposed completion date of the new public parking lot is Fall 2014; stay tuned!
