Downtown Parking & Transportation Demand Management Program (PTDM)

The “Downtown Parking and Transportation Demand Management Program" (PTDM) will result in three principal deliverables:

  • An effective parking management program (through price, information, facility coordination, etc.) for public/private and on-/off-street parking;
  • A parking facility development program (for shared parking facilities that meet private development parking requirements and serve the public); and
  • A funding program (to finance construction and on-going activities).

The PTDM will include recommendations for changes: to current parking practices (for on-street spaces and off-street garages), and development requirements for development and Transportation Demand Management programs. 

The internationally recognized firm of Nelson/Nygaard is providing consulting services to this project.

On Wednesday, June 9, 2010, Nelson/Nygaard will present important PTDM strategies and other information to a joint meeting of the Planning Commission and Transportation Commission.  Draft recommendations are expected in September 2010.
