Downtown Parking Management

Parking Meter FAQ

Downtown Parking Use Survey - December 2011

Goals

1. Reduce the number of vehicles that are parked all day (long-term) in hourly (short-term) spaces.

2. Ensure that both the Marine Park Parking Garage and the Telephone Hill Parking Garage (under construction) are utilized at or near capacity year-round.

3. Ensure that on-street parking spaces are available near all destinations at all times of the day for use by visitors who only need short-term parking.

Policies

I. Manage on- and off-street parking resources so as to ensure that both long- and short-term parkers can find parking suitable to their needs at all times.

II. Manage parking as a component of a multi-modal transportation system, recognizing that adequate parking cannot be supplied at any destination in the downtown area for peak demand, and that walking, bicycling, use of shuttles/buses, carpooling, and other transportation tools are part of the solution to any parking problem.

III. Parking management must be simple enough that parkers can easily know how long they may park in any given space, and what the fee for parking in that space (if any) is.
