Getting to Right-Sized Parking

Innovative Approaches to the Traditional Supply/ Demand Mentality

what is right sized parking
What is Right Sized Parking?
  • Predicting parking needs based on actual data about a site or community, rather than using predictive generation characteristics.
  • Studies have shown that the old methods:
    • Increase vehicle ownership
    • Increase vehicle miles traveled
    • Increase congestion
    • Increase housing costs
city county parking ordinances
City/County Parking Ordinances
  • Apply generic land use parking ratios
  • Broad category types
  • Based on approximations or what other communities are doing
national industry standards
National Industry Standards
  • Apply generic land use parking ratios
  • Generic category types are applied as “one-size-fits-all”
  • Based on limited research from suburban developments
introducing shared parking
Introducing Shared Parking
  • Finally starting to realize parking is a system
  • Multiple land uses and users can utilize shared pool of spaces
  • Still relies heavily on generic industry land use standards

We need methods that allow us to predict parking demands for our actual uses and users, with variations for location, relationship, and context within our communities.

let s look at an example
Let’s Look At An Example
      • 300 room hotel
      • 30,000 sf retail
      • 20,000 sf restaurant
  • How much parking do we need?
