The City of Orange has been working with OCTA on options for expanded parking at the OTC. In November 2009, the Orange City Council and Redevelopment Agency adopted a preferred alternative for two parking structures: one located on the Lemon Street lot and one on the south end of the parking lot west of the tracks. On August 23, 2011, the Orange City Council modified the preferred alternative to remove the West Chapman parking structure due to site constraints and cost considerations. The current preferred alternative consists of a parking structure only on the Lemon Street lot. The project is planned to involve phased construction of the parking structure with a temporary parking lot on the retail and restaurant parcels until those parcels can be sold and developed by private developers.
