-Downtown Parking Public Meeting (August 13, 2013) Meeting Presentation
The Planning Department held a second public meeting for Downtown Parking on August 13, 2013. The meeting focused on dicussing a wide range of potential solutions to resolve parking problems in the downtown area. Potential strategies and solutions are proposed in three categories: parking creation, parking enforcement, and parking management. To get a questionnare and leave your comments, please download the sheet now, look at the research below, and bring your comments to the Planning Department.

 

    • Parking Enforcement
      One of the primary problems identified in the initial parking meeting was spotty enforcement of time limits in high-demand spaces. This document presents research on a number of different enforcement alternatives and addresses some of the potential costs and downsides of each.

 

  • Parking Management
    This document deals with ways the city can better manage its current parking stock. This includes better direction to open lots, better allocation of time limits, and better placement of employee parking.
