Council Reviews Multi-Year Parking Plan

The provision of safe, attractive, and convenient public parking is an essential complement to our ongoing downtown revitalization efforts. As previously reported, the City commissioned a major block-by-block analysis last year to identify parking needs and opportunities. This month, our staff followed up with a detailed multi-year plan, outlining improvements at various lots and funding streams to support infrastructure enhancements. According to the plan, in the short-term, the parking stations at our Transit Center will be upgraded, together with all of our on-street meters. During the next six years, each of our surface lots will receive new design treatment, landscaping, signage, and use-friendly technology. Funding would come from meter and permit rates, with no expenditures from our general operating budget. The full report, which contains much more, can be read HERE.
