No Extra Parking

The town of Vail has pulled out of an effort to relieve ski season parking problems by turning a softball field into a parking lot.

Officials say costs for the lot were skyrocketing. Under the proposal, overflow parking would have been added at Ford Park, about a mile east of the Vail parking garage. And, they add, it would have been up to taxpayers to cover the costs.

Vail's city council voted six to one not to support the idea.

The vote came after it came to light that restoring the softball field next spring after using it as a parking lot all winter would cost thousands and thousands of dollars.
