The City of Lafayette recently finalized the purchase of a parking lot on Moraga Road. The .75 acre parking lot is located across the street from Lafayette Elementary School, near the United Methodist Church. The city purchased the lot for $2.315 million.
The city purchased the lot to allow for more parking for visitors of Lafayette Elementary School, the Town Hall Theater and the businesses in the area. Allowing for more parking for visitors to the school could potentially help the traffic problem the area faces during school drop-off and pick-up hours.
The city already owns two small parking lots in the downtown area.
