WATERTOWN, S.D.–KWAT News told you a few weeks ago about developer Jesse Craig’s idea of building a parking ramp in downtown Watertown.

Craig has had preliminary talks with city officials about building a four level, 128 stall parking ramp downtown that would have up to 28 apartment units on the top level.

Watertown Mayor Ried Holien is lukewarm to the idea, especially if it involves “paid parking”…..

Craig says he’s identified a site for the parking ramp, but he’s not ready to disclose it publicly.

The project would require city approval, but at this point, it has not reached the city council level.
