Parking in AA

Some time back, I complained about the parking vaildation situation with Borders in downtown Ann Arbor, since they now require you to actually buy something to get parking validation and they will only give you an hour worth of parking. My bitch/complaint (basically) was where else can I get parking? Well, thanks to a helpful comment from someone named Kyle, now I know. I was sorting through some old email messages and I thought I’d post the list that he posted earlier to my blog here this afternoon.

    Hi Steve. As someone new to the Ann Arbor area and as someone who also works in higher ed, I enjoy your blog. Thanks!

  2. Stephanie says:

    thanks for the list. I should print it and keep it in the car, but will I really be that organized?? we’ll see…

  3. Lisamarie says:

    How interesting! Not exactly how I expected to see our company pop up on the web, but a perfectly valid — if you’ll excuse the pun — way for it to occur.

    One correction, however. Menlo Innovations is the training and computer company on 4th Avenue. Menlo Associates is a holding company that owns us (and a number of other companies, including the Accent Reduction Institute, which also validates parking).

    If you could update the name, I’d be thankful. Of course, you could also add ARI, which shares our workspace and also validates — but is a completely separate business.
