Looking Toward the Future:
Paid Parking Comes to Park City
Parking is currently free in the Old Town area with inconsistent parking time limits, spotty enforcement, and confusing way finding/signage which results to increased congestion and vehicle miles travel due to drivers looking for parking. Free parking in Park City’s most popular yet congested area does not support recommendations and strategies in the General Plan, Traffic and Transportation Master Plan, or the recently adopted Transportation Demand Management Plan which estimates that parking demand management can reduce vehicle miles traveled from between 10-15%. Lastly, private and public parking are not managed in a comprehensive manner which does not make the most effective use of the available inventory. As such, staff proceeded with the development of the Downtown and Main Street Parking and Management Plan.
