6/11/2019 PPAC Draft Parking Plan Presentation
This draft parking plan was presented by Committee Member McFarlin with assistance from Committee Member Vinson. The draft parking plan consists of ideas on topics that have not been recommended by the PPAC or approved by the Common Council.
The purpose of this plan is to get the PPAC to begin discussing topics and to gather feedback on concepts relating to the creation of a managed parking system.
6/11/2019 PPAC Parking Replacement Options For Recommendations
This presentation was provided to the PPAC for feedback. As an advisory committee to the Common Council, the PPAC reviewed various parking replacement options and made recommendations to pass forward to the Common Council based on the options provided.
The PPAC voted to pass forward to the recommendations below with the condition that a traffic study is done to determine whether it is advisable for the City to pursue changing Durkee Street into a one-way street. The Common Council will now consider the recommendations and feedback from the PPAC as part of their decision making progress. The options still require final engineering and design work.
|Parking Replacement Options|
|Rank||Option||Net New Spaces (Public)|
|1||Arnie Pavone Memorial Parking Plaza||115|
|3||County Main Lot Expansion||60|
|5||Broad Street Lot Expansion||15|

*This recommendation was made conditional upon further analysis of the effects of changing Durkee Street to a one-way Street*
