New parking garage in Greenfield nearly finished

Franklin County

Construction crews were working on the interior and exterior of Greenfield’s new municipal parking garage on Tuesday afternoon.

The four-level parking garage will have 272 parking spaces when it’s finished and will accommodate all vehicles, including electric cars.

Everyone will have to pay to park in the garage, but frequent users will be able to purchase monthly parking permits.

“I think it looks good,” local resident Jazmyn Brewington told 22News. “I can hear the construction from where I live, which isn’t that big of an issue. But hopefully, it will be done by October.”

Parking garage project manager Jon Bona told 22News crews will be installing lights and security cameras over the next two weeks.

The state is covering 75 percent of the construction cost with a $7.5 million MassWorks grant.

Bona said they’ve invited Governor Charlie Baker to attend a ribbon cutting for the opening of the new parking garage, which is scheduled for October 26.
