Parks Not Parking
St. Jude has proposed building a seven-story parking tower in Greenlaw/Uptown right by the Bridges Center between N. 3rd and N. 4th St. This project would remove essential green space and poses challenges including increased traffic, flooding, and landscape development. Parks Not Parking has sent over 1,000 letters to the Board of Adjustment to show opposition to the garage.
Due to our efforts the project has been postponed. As confirmed in The Daily Memphian, ALSAC requested a 30 day continuance, meaning that the Board of Adjustments did not review the proposed parking garage in December. The Board will be meeting on January 26th, 2022 to discuss the proposed parking structure. To learn more, please visit https://parksnotparking901.org/.
