2017 Parking Management Study - Phase 1

The Town Parking Study will create a complete parking strategy that balances the community’s goals for land use, transportation, and Town operations. The focus of this project is the residential and commercial areas outside of Downtown. Future phases of the Parking Study will look at Downtown parking and other aspects of parking in Town.

This project will help to:

1 | Identify how many on-street and off-street parking spaces exist and how they are being used.

2 | Evaluate how well requirements to provide parking match actual parking supply and demand.

3 | Decide whether regulations and public policies need to be revised to better accommodate existing development and future growth.

Updates

On June 27, Town Council approved 10 policy questions that will guide the update to Town Zoning.  To see these policy questions, click here

Background

Parking is about more than just having a convenient place to leave your vehicle! Parking affects many of the community’s goals, such as workforce housing, pedestrian-friendly street designs, and alternative transportation.

• The Workforce Housing Action Plan identifies that the current on-site parking requirements discourage the construction of denser workforce housing, that is needed to meet the community’s housing goals

• The Parking Study will help shift the area around the “Y” intersection from its current vehicle-focus to be more pedestrian friendly as envisioned in the Comprehensive Plan.

• Parking location and availability influences the decisions that people make about their own transportation. The Parking Study will influence public transit (START Bus) options.

• On-street parking policy has a major impact on the Public Works Department’s workload due to snow plowing operations and the Police Department’s workload for enforcement of on-street parking laws.

 

The proposed comprehensive Parking Study is comprised of four (4) separate yet integrated projects:
1. Residential, Non-Downtown Commercial, and Park-n-Ride Parking Study
2. Downtown Core Parking Study
3. Regional Corridor Parking Study
4. Community-wide Transportation Demand Management Scoping


Elected officials acknowledged the need for developing a comprehensive parking strategy that balances
land use, transportation, and operations impacts in order to the implement the community’s goals. The
comprehensive Parking Study including all four (4) parts was prepared and recommended by the
Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC).


Based upon direction at the November 14th Joint Information Meeting staff prepared and released a Request for Proposals (RFP) that included the Scope of Work for Phase 1 of the 2017 Parking and Management Study that focuses on the residential and commercial areas outside the Downtown Core.
