Organizers of "FourSquare Day" in Portsmouth say the city's walkable downtown is one of the reasons why the event is successful.

Officials in Portsmouth are set to vote Monday night on a proposed $23.2 million downtown parking garage.

The city council is scheduled to hold a public hearing before voting on the proposal.

The six-story parking garage is expected to create an additional 600 new parking spots downtown.

Hundreds of people have signed a petition opposed to the project.
