Parking Action Plan Approved

At the August 8 meeting, City Council accepted the Parking Action Plan recently submitted to the City by Walker Parking Consultants and endorsed the City staff's recommended short-term (remainder of 2017) and mid-term (first half of 2018) strategy for the implementation of recommendations contained in the Plan.  See link below for cover memo and approved Parking Action Plan. 

City Staff will now begin active implementation of the Plan.  The earliest actions will involve changes to parking restrictions on several downtown streets, including the restoration of two hour parking in the William Street corridor (500 and 600 blocks), modifications to the parking polices in the vicinity of the Farmers Market adjacent to Hurkamp Park and conversion of on-street parking spaces that have been reserved for the use of adjacent properties back to general use parking. One of the most noticeable of the actions to be taken in the short term in the Historic Downtown is the lengthening of the two hour parking restrictions on many streets. In those areas where the two hour parking is in place, the restriction will now be in effect Monday through Saturday, 8 am - 7 pm.


The Parking Task Force (Vice Mayor Billy Withers, Councilor Tim Duffy, Rick Pierce - UMW, D.D. Lecky – Main Street, Joe Wilson and Bill Beck – EDA) and City staff have been working since Fall 2016 to listen to the community, understand our parking inventory, understand best practices on urban parking and to seek recommendations on how to build an action plan that addresses parking issues.
