The Morning Brew: The latest downtown OKC parking saga

Parking lot by theater patrons was purchased two years ago

The Oklahoman's Steve Lackmeyer takes a look at a brewing controversy in downtown OKC used by patrons of Lyric Theater. 

Discord is rising among property owners in the Plaza District following the realization that half of a parking lot used by Lyric Theater was quietly purchased two years ago by Jeff Struble, who is considering ending free use for theater patrons and visitors.

Parking has been in scarce supply over the past few years as the once-dormant commercial corridor along NW 16 has turned into a popular destination lined with restaurants, shops, arts venues and bars.

Lyric Theater still controls a small parking lot that, when there isn't a show or classes, is free and open to visitors across from its home at 1727 NW 16. The theater also has a larger parking lot next to its children's theater a block west. That lot was half owned by Lyric and half owned by a longtime area property owner.
