Santa Barbara’s ‘safe parking‘ program hopes to provide temporary relief for the homeless while the City looks for long-term solutions.

A tale of two cities (parking): in the same 4-5 year period Pittsburgh increased its parking revenue by $12 million while Indianapolis averages $3.5 million. here is why: one of them leased the city’s parking meter operations to a private company.

Austin raises downtown parking meter rates but also launches an affordable parking permit program for service workers working late shifts. Hopefully, parking revenue will be used to invest in late night transit services so service workers will soon have more transportation choices.

If tactical urbanism can temporarily improve our streets and test viable solutions, why can’t we apply it to test shared-parking solutions?

Washington D.C.‘s parking meter massacre reminds us why cities need to move on from meters to smart payment methods.

City of Newport partnered with Lancaster Engineering to find parking solutions for fishermen, businesses, and tourists (page 1 and 7).

Zoning’s minimum parking requirements kill downtowns.
