Parking concerns Mission dwellers if park is put in 

Poetic is being waxed by city officials about a park trumping a parking lot in the Mission in what they say is one of the most populated areas that has the least amount of open space.

However, it also means the death of about 200-plus parking spaces at 17th and Folsom streets, a $2.4 million slab of concrete owned by the public utilities commission.

It’s causing enough concern for planning officials to hold a meeting to brainstorm on creative solutions for the loss. That meeting is on Tuesday at 4 p.m. in the planning department at 1650 Mission St. in room 431.

And it’s still months before the money will even be secured for Rec and Park to buy the multimillion-dollar property and also start on construction.

The decision on the grant probably won’t be made until September.
