What Do You Want to See Here?: The East E Street Parking Lot

What should go in this downtown space?

The East E Street parking lot is an under-utilized piece of downtown dirt. It is bounded on the north and south by alleys, on the east by East Second Street and to the west are private properties.  

There has been at least one proposal to put housing and retail on the site and continue East E Street through to East Second.  Others have opined that this is a perfect spot for a performing arts center.

Assuming the lot isn't big enough for a Trader Joe's, what would you like to see here?

thanks JB for the update, I voted for it, $15.00 added to License fee's was a great idea to keep CA parks open.

A walking garden, a park, a water-feature, lots of trees and benches to bring our morning coffee to or read a book in...that would be a nice use for the land. why should the cars get all the nice pieces of land?

Billy..if only it were that simple right? a big parking garage would never get enough usage. agree with that, I think there are a number of folks who would shop in town for things they cant get at a safeway or raleys if a Whole Foods were here..Trader Joes is good also but does not have as much as Whole Foods...IMO
