Downtown business owners: Proposed State Street hotel could bring shoppers, parking concerns

When people complain about the lack of parking in downtown Madison, Overture Center for the Arts president and CEO Ted DeDee can relate.

His job doesn’t have a reserved parking spot, so about a dozen times a year, when he finds the Overture lot and nearby city parking ramp full, he drives to the Dane County parking ramp on West Main Street, or sometimes all the way to the Government East garage on East Doty Street, about a half mile away from Overture.

Despite the downtown parking crunch, he’s optimistic about the possibilities of a proposed hotel on the 100 block of State Street.
