Officials in the City of Binghamton are poised to address the decades-old problem of parking downtown.

January 29, offers from companies wanting to compile a comprehensive study of the downtown parking situation are to be reviewed by city officials.

Current problems in the district include crumbling concrete at the city parking garages on State Street, Water Street and at the Collier Street Ramp, where scaffolding was hastily erected to protect pedestrians after debris fell from a stairwell.

The parking shortage is expected to only get worse with several student housing developments either completed or underway within blocks of each other.

The lack of parking is also said to be holding back more economic development in the city.

Officials are expected to select a company to conduct the study February 12.
