Exciting changes are taking place in the heart of Redding. New buildings are being constructed while old ones are being retrofitted, renovated and remodeled. Plans for more convenient roadways and streets are in the making, and (as most know) the parking garage in Downtown Redding will be coming down. Despite the upcoming transitions and transformations, businesses plan to keep their doors open through it all. Once all the dust settles, and the projects are finished, downtown will be home to shiny new superstructures used for housing, restaurants, retail, office space and a compact parking garage. The transformation will leave Downtown Redding as an attractive hub for locals and those passing through.
You can head to the City of Redding’s new website for in depth information—www.cityofredding.org/downtown. The website provides links for the Downtown Parking Strategy; California Street Parking Structure information; parking maps (interactive link and a pdf); Downtown project updates and alternative modes of transportation options. Check it out and visit downtown during the construction.
