The Salem City Council Monday night will review Downtown Tax Increment Financing Project proposals and the downtown parking survey.

City Manager Bill Gruen expects to have a summary of proposed tax increment district projects ready for Monday evening's meeting to review. One of them is for a new business in the currently vacant building at the corner of Main and Washington Street across from the courthouse. The council was told at the last meeting funding could be available for three projects at $15,000 apiece.

Gruen plans to present the results of a downtown parking survey to find out how those in the downtown feel about time limited parking. The survey was undertaken after the city received a complaint from a customer who received a ticket for violating the two hour parking limit after shopping in three downtown businesses.

The council will review a proposed contract between the city and Unlimited Play to assist with fundraising and planning for an inclusive playground in Bryan Memorial Park. Unlimited Play charges $10,000 for their services. The cost would be covered by fundraising efforts the Inclusive Playground Committee undertakes.

The council will consider a proposal from Nicholas Harris of 505 North College to purchase a small triangular remnant lot which went un-subdivided in the new Armory plat due to its small size and the interest expressed by Harris.

The council meeting begins at six Monday night at Salem City Hall.
