How do other
cities manage parking? What techniques and tools proved successful and what ones
failed? As part of updating the City of Fort
Collins' Parking Plan, an advisory panel of parking experts from
around the country will visit Fort
Collins for intensive analysis and recommendation
workshops. The parking panel consists of six experts, from cities like Tacoma
WA, Boulder CO, Missoula MT, and Cedar
Rapids IA, who are top
professionals in parking, downtown revitalization and city management. Other
cities that held similar panels gained many creative yet practical solutions to
parking problems. No need to re-create the parked wheel
Meet the expert parking panel at public workshops at the City offices at
215 North Mason
Street, in the Community Room.
- A morning or evening workshop to meet the panel and join the conversation on Monday, September 26, 2011 at 8:15-9:15 AM or 5:30-6:30 PM.
- Then join us again for the
panel's findings and recommendations on Wednesday, September 28, 2011,
The City's Parking Plan provides guidance to parking management and the City's parking program. The plan, last updated as part of the 2004 Fort Collins Downtown Strategic Plan, describes parking conditions and key problems, establishes guiding principles and policies, and recommends parking management and development strategies. It is an important tool to sustain and enhance the economic health of our Downtown.
