City seeks input regarding downtown parking
As part of its current effort to study all aspects of parking operations in the greater downtown area, the City of Kansas City, Mo., invites anyone who parks in downtown Kansas City to participate in an online survey, which can be found at: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/KCMOParking.
The study is focusing on the Central Business District and the surrounding neighborhoods on both sides of the Missouri River, from 31st Street on the south; North Kansas City, Mo., on the north; State Line Road on the west; and Woodland Avenue on the east. Key districts of the study area are:
The first phase of this effort is a comprehensive evaluation of the public parking supply and demand, reviewing the on-street parking supply, the City’s off-street parking system, and privately owned facilities that offer public parking. A key component of that work is to gauge what downtown business owners, employees and patrons consider issues to be.
Ultimately, the study will result in recommendations to improve or enhance the overall management, operations and the financial position of the City’s Parking System. It is anticipated that the study will be complete in early fall.
For more information about the study, please call Bruce Campbell, parking administrator, at 816-513-2819.
