Another Wilson Street garage surprise: the plan staff have sent to the engineering firm for conceptual design includes two floors underground. Councillor Bob Bell will ask staff Monday to have the consultant figure out the costs of a garage without underground parking as well.
A report from Derek McCaughan, director of operations, went to council yesterday saying the consultant can be asked to figure out the costs for 250 spots instead of the 500-some spots they're currently working on. But McCaughan writes that staff believe the smaller garage wouldn't satisfy council's goals for the garage, which would include making room for commuters riding a potential future GO transit service.
