New Annapolis garage opens on West Street

Annapolis officially opened its new Knighton parking garage on Colonial and West streets in Annapolis yesterday, city officials said.

The garage will charge $1 an hour and a maximum of $10 a day for hourly parkers. Monthly rates will be $80 for those using the garage from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Those seeking 24-hour access will pay $100 a month.

Knighton is the third garage to be operated by the city, along with the Hillman and Gott's Court garages. The garage, near a retail district on West Street, adds 220 spaces to the city's parking capacity.

Jan Hardesty, a city spokeswoman, described the red-brick Knighton garage as "long-awaited."

Naval Academy to hold boxing event tomorrow

Midshipmen will lace up their gloves, step into the ring and square off tomorrow night in the U.S. Naval Academy's 64th annual Brigade Boxing Championship.
