The City Clerk’s office is accepting applications for the newly formed Parking Advisory Board until Thursday, January 17. All interested Downtown Association Members are encouraged to apply.
The new seven person* Parking Advisory Board was formed by Council ordinance (click here to view) on December 12, 2018 with the support of the Downtown Association. The Parking Advisory Board will serve an advisory function to the City manager and council regarding parking and mobility, including parking benefit districts, on-street parking regulations, and codes and ordinances relating to parking facilities, mobility solutions, and transportation demand management. Council also approved a budget amendment to immediately hire a Parking and Mobility Manager who is anticipated to actively work with the Parking Advisory Board on parking and mobility solutions in the Downtown.
A “Downtown Association Recommended Member” and a “Main Street Recommended Member” for the Parking Advisory Board will each be submitted directly to the City by those respective organizations’ Boards; however, all other members of the Parking Advisory Board will be selected exclusively by Council and include seats for a Downtown Business Owner, Downtown Property Owner, Downtown Resident, and two at-large members. With the exception of the Downtown Resident member seat, there are no residency requirements stated in the ordinance.
