LA to privatize garages?
As we briefly discussed before, LA may privatize some parking garages to raise $100 million in a one-time payment. It could lead to more market-rate garage pricing, but the city won’t get much of the benefit in the future. It also just gets them out of their budget hole for having built $60 million worth of garages recently. (LA Times, Stanton Park) (Tip: Stanton Park)Twitter
