Surprise parking lot in the Dartmouth Common.

Surprise parking lot in the Dartmouth Common.


Remarks: When the dilapidated Dartmouth museum was torn down, we were told that the lot would be returned to Common green space, yet about a third of the area is now a parking lot. Bigelow says a parking lot is necessary to access the Common, ignoring the fact of the Bridge bus terminal a block away, lots of adjacent on-street parking and, ya know, the end of the oil economy and the collapse of automobile culture. Parking lots are sooo last century, says we.


Who's Responsible?: Peter Bigelow, real property manager, HRM, 490-6047.
