The How Parking Management Can Increase Transportation Choices and Leverage Downtown Growth webinar will explore emerging parking best practices to turn catalysts into opportunities which improve the appeal, efficiency, and potential intensification of urban places. We will also review new approaches to quantifying demand and management of off-street parking, which is enabling more downtown development, reducing parking provision costs, and creating greater net revenues to finance further public realm improvements. 

Facing shifts in development patterns, mobility, and ground floor activity, few downtowns have been nimble enough to adapt to the transportation challenges that come with vacant retail spaces becoming active restaurants, rideshare companies making curbside drop-offs, and urban dwellers not owning cars. This webinar will explore emerging parking best practices to turn these catalysts into opportunities which improve the appeal, efficiency, and potential intensification of urban places. We will also review new approaches to quantifying demand and management of off-street parking, which is enabling more downtown development, reducing parking provision costs, and creating greater net revenues to finance further public realm improvements.

Finally, we will discuss how parking strategies can preserve equitable mobility choices, while reducing costs of development and unlocking new opportunities. This is creating innovative ways to tap the growing value of downtown real estate to promote mixed-income housing, more equitable access to downtown jobs, and other steps that enhance economic diversity.

Learning Objectives:

• Explore implications of new technologies and generational preferences driving downtown development and how that impacts curbside management

• Understand how emerging parking strategies can provide new opportunities for their downtowns

• Evaluate the equity, fiscal, and policy opportunities and challenges presented by shifts in parking demand

• Identify planning and design approaches that promote new ways to tap the growing value of downtown real estate
