Parking Study Data

Parking occupancy and utilization data was collected on a "typical day" in late October 2022 from 8am-8pm and overnight between 2-4 am. This is standard practice for parking studies to get an objective sense of the parking demand through the day. The study showed that parking demand overall is low to moderate during a typical day. However, parking is constrained and difficult to find when there are large events nearby.
