Parking Management Strategy
We want your feedback. The City is considering parking rule, regulation and rate changes as part of a city-wide Parking Management Strategy. We want to make sure our parking system:
- Improves availability of short-term parking spaces
- Continues to pay for itself so that general taxation is not impacted
- Offers customer service options for better customer interaction
- Provides a balanced transportation network for residents
Here’s where you come in.
We want your feedback to be sure we haven’t missed any important issues, aren’t missing out on new ideas and are generally headed in the right direction with this important strategy. Please take a few minutes to browse the topics and leave your feedback, ideas, suggestions, kudos or disproval so we can come up with a strategy together that will work for our community.
