A proposed contract for $91,000 to conduct a downtown parking study is among the items on the Edmonds City Council’s Parks and Public Works Committee agenda this Tuesday, July 9.
The last downtown parking study was completed in 2003, the council agenda notes, and since that time, downtown Edmonds has become a “significant destination where people live, work, shop and eat.” In addition, there have been changes to parking and zoning — as well as planned redevelopment– that will impact parking demands.
The initial scope of work in the proposed professional services agreement with consultant Framework includes the following:
– Data collection of existing conditions (including parking inventory, utilization, license plate readings)
– Evaluation of future parking demand (over next 10 years)
– Public engagement
– Parking strategies and recommendations (such as enforcement, tick-mark expansion, time limit limitations, additional private parking lots, parking permit process, parking requirement based on land use category, roadway re-configurations, bike-share locations, shuttle option, paid parking options…)
– Implementation plan including timeline, estimates, and monitoring of recommendations
The study is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2019.
What follows is a summary of agenda items for all three committees, which meet in different rooms simultaneously starting at 7 p.m. in the Public Safety Complex, 250 5th Ave. N., Edmonds. Committee meetings are work sessions for council members and staff. While they are open to the public, no public comment is taken.
