Chamber supports Exeter garage

An Exeter Area Chamber of Commerce task force is recommending construction of a four-level garage at the Water Street municipal lot to provide spaces for long-term parking needs.

Tracey McGrail, president of the chamber, told selectmen last month that demand for spaces in the downtown lot outstrips its capacity.

Estimated cost of a 280-space brick garage would be about $6.2 million, McGrail said.

The task force suggests creating a parking fund that could ultimately be used to pay for the garage, she said.
