SCAG Toolbox Tuesdays
Toolbox Tuesdays Schedule for Fall 2011:
September 27 (10:00 am – 4:00 pm)
Parking Systems Management
Parking and Parking Systems Management have become a major topic in planning since the publication of Professor Donald Shoup’s “The High Cost of Free Parking.” Municipal planners have become fully aware of the minimum parking requirements deeply embedded in their zoning codes that keep them from achieving the development they seek. On the other hand, property owners, developers, and business owners have begun to realize that these regulations do not help their customers and can hinder their expansion plans.
For this parking session we will be hosting an all-day interactive seminar and workshop on a variety of parking topics. The session will be organized into morning and afternoon blocks. The morning block will cover a general parking concept overview, and look specifically at parking issues facing our suburban areas, including park-once strategies for Suburban Villages, parking systems management at Metrolink Commuter Rail stations, shared parking negotiations, parking audits, and planning for new parking. The afternoon session will cover issues faced by more urbanized areas such as parking pricing, changing traditional parking policies, approving automated parking structures, and implementing robust bike parking policies.
We will conclude the day with an open workshop format where you will be able to address specific parking issues with two regional parking policy specialists.
