St. Charles' new parking deck on 1st Street, informally referred to as First Street Parking Garage-East, is now officially named in honor of a former mayor of St. Charles: Sue Klinkhamer.

The action to rename the parking facility was made at the Dec. 19 St. Charles City Council meeting.

Klinkhamer served as Ward 1 alderman from 1989-1997, and then was elected as the first female mayor of St. Charles. Klinkhamer served as mayor from 1997-2005. Planning for the First Street development got under way in 2002.

“The genesis of the First Street development (took place) during Mayor Sue Klinkhamer’s administration,” said St. Charles Mayor Ray Rogina. “During her tenure and leadership, with support from the City Council and from a variety of St. Charles citizens, the foundation for creating a vibrant and strong pedestrian-friendly downtown environment was established. What we see today over a decade later is a result of the execution of that original vision and effort.”

The public parking garage, which is on the north east corner of 1st and Illinois streets, has 110 spaces and is part of Phase 3 of the 1st Street Development Project.
