Monday’s scheduled meeting of the Downtown tax increment finance district board to discuss the future of free parking has been “cancelled due to ongoing negotiations affecting action items that were scheduled to be considered at the meeting,” the TIF administrator said Friday afternoon.

The TIF’s 9 a.m. meeting for Oct. 29 in the pre-council chambers at Fort Worth City Hall is still scheduled, Jim Johnson, director of downtown development in the TIF district and the TIF administrator, said in an email to reporters.

That meeting would be days before the expiration of a lease at the 777 Main garage that provides free parking for Bass Hall patrons.

Minutes before the TIF’s announcement, a spokesman for Bass Hall said it had just learned of the meeting cancellation.

The TIF agenda contained two items: free downtown parking, and an amended budget for the fiscal 2015 year.
