Will lost parking be replaced?

Congratulations to the city of Ketchum for beginning work on the "Fourth Street Heritage Corridor." However, I still have a few questions concerning the corridor.

Last Thursday, I stopped by the Coffee Grinder to look at the drawing of the corridor project and then I walked the eight blocks of the future corridor. On my walk I counted parking spaced along the eight blocks and came up with a present count of 149 spaces (including five on the south side of Fourth Street in the block west of Second Avenue, none on the north side of the same block). In the drawing I noted there will be 22 angle parking spaces at the east end of the corridor and nine angle spaces at the west end of the corridor (down by the bike path), but none in the business core.

So, the question arises, is there presently a plan to replace these 118 lost downtown core parking spaces and if so: When? Where? How?
