The U-M Board of Regents approved the schematic design for the garage earlier this month.
The parking structure has been heavily contested since it was first proposed in 2008. Partially due to discontent among nearby residents, in 2009 U-M cancelled its plans for a parking structure on Wall Street in favor for the Fuller Road Station, a parking structure and transport station to be completed jointly with the city.
Yet due to slow movement on the Fuller Road project, the university announced in February that it was scrapping its involvement on that project and revisiting plans for a parking garage on Wall Street.
The 700-space Wall Street parking structure will be built atop a 200-space existing parking lot.
Tuesday's meeting is the second community gathering held by U-M to discuss the parking structure. The first was in late April.
Tuesday's meeting will be held on the seventh floor of the Kellogg Eye Center.
