Parking issues in Saratoga have been a hot topic of discussion for quite some time. A multi-level parking garage was in the works on High Rock Avenue, but the plan was halted earlier this year because of two lawsuits, which are still ongoing. 

Last month, Saratoga began discussing paid parking options, in addition to shuttles, efficiency studies, and any other possible resources.

The discussion is now in full swing again, as a prominent area company looks into merging two of its offices to one Saratoga location. The city is investigating the possibility of a parking deck to accommodate hundreds of new employees to Saratoga, and the site has been approved.
