Yes, Scott, the owner of the Tivoli, Willis Johnson, did talk to the village about his land being used for parking. In July, Patch wrote a story about it. This is an excerpt from that story:
Johnson, who also owns property adjacent to the theatre, “offered to make some land available” a few years ago in an attempt to provide a north-side parking solution.
“I had some discussion with the village regarding some property, as to whether or not they might be interested in some kind of arrangement that they could build parking on the north side,” he said. Village officials looked into it and “decided that it did not work for the village,” he said.
Here's the link to the entire story:

I totally agree, Rick--isn't it amazing how a trip abroad can widen your world? I had a similar eye-opening experience when I spent three months in South Africa last year. It flipped my world upside down--it was an incredible time and a highlight of my life thus far, for sure. Thanks for sharing.
