Residents Encouraged to Comment on Downtown Parking
(Fayetteville, N.C.) — The City of Fayetteville has begun collecting data and seeking public input for the downtown parking study. The public has an opportunity to offer input this Friday, June 22 in front of 222 Hay St. from 9-11 a.m. and 6-8 p.m. During this initial public involvement period, input will be collected through stakeholder committee meetings, public forum opportunities, as well as, an electronic survey.
Residents are encouraged to participate in the electronic survey, which may be accessed at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Parking_Fayetteville.
The parking study will evaluate current/future parking demands, regulations and perform comparisons to Fayetteville’s peer cities within North Carolina while considering the multi-modal nature of the downtown area. The City received a Revitalization and Economic Development Grant to conduct this downtown parking study.
The study was awarded to Walker Consultants of Charlotte and began in May 2018. The study is expected to be completed by the end of the year. The stakeholder committee consists of various contacts from City and County governments, downtown businesses and residents, the Cool Spring Downtown District, Chamber of Commerce and Historic Properties Division.
