How will parking be accommodated for the proposed development and how will it impact the existing downtown?
The City will be completing a parking study in 2017 to determine the needs of the Phase II development and the larger downtown retail district. The uses to be proposed within the Phase II development will be studied to determine peak hours for each, the number of spaces needed, and the appropriate location for parking. The City is meeting with downtown stakeholders and surveying local businesses to assess parking management strategies which may be needed within the existing downtown retail district.
