Advancing Places: Parking & Mobility

Overview: To support local economies during the current pandemic, municipal and downtown district leaders will hear from three experts who have their eye on parking and curbside policies and opportunities for interventions. Learn about overall trends and implications resulting from changes in travel habits, declines in transit use, an anticipated rebound in commuting by private vehicle and an uptick in bicycling and curbside use.

Specific case studies will address loading needs, use of public space to support restaurants and take-out, contact-free technologies, flexible permitting, and overall nimbleness and responsiveness to support our business community and vulnerable workers.
