Parking Management Study
About the Parking Management Study
This study of City-wide parking issues includes an examination of meters, handicap parking, residential permit zones, enforcement, City Code and regulations, and parking hot spots. The City-wide study builds on survey results, the grant-funded research and mapping, and additional data collection and community input.
Current Project Status
Staff is developing recommendations for City-wide parking policies to be presented to Council, incorporating the work of the MWCOG-funded study and additional community input.
Two public open house meetings were held in October 2016 to share findings from the study so far and gather community input. See the Meeting Boards. Public comments were solicited from October 7 through November 7.
The project kicked off with an online survey in Fall 2015, garnering nearly 300 responses from residents, visitors, and businesses. The technical assistance grant from MWCOG was complete and the consultants made a presentation to City Council on June 15, 2016 and submitted a report.
