Lot Swap

Not sure exactly which two lots are getting swapped since there is no lot, of which I know, at the southwest corner of East Mill and S. Washington. Maybe the southeast corner at the same location? Still a good move though as the East Grand lot sits half a block away from the main SIUC campus, providing more close-in parking to that area. SIUC has plenty of parking, it is plenty of convenient parking that the university lacks.

The swap works out well for the city as it puts a large number of parking spaces within a block of downtown Carbondale. While not as good as having a large block of spaces bordering or just off S. Illinois, only a block away is still pretty convenient, as long as the city puts signage up informing drivers the spots are there.
