Downtown Parking Study and Plan

Background Information

With public and private investment on the rise in Downtown Parker, the Town has identified the need to plan to meet the parking and mobility needs of everyone who enjoys the Town’s vibrant urban core. 

To proactively plan for future parking demand in downtown, the Town has engaged Denver-based Kimley-Horn and Associates to conduct a parking study in downtown.

The purpose of the study is to identify current and future parking and access needs in a way that prepares the community for future growth while also balancing the desire to maintain Parker’s local, hometown feel.

Through the parking study process, the Town hopes to identify strategies that will:

  1. Make it easier for residents and visitors to access Downtown Parker safely and efficiently using their preferred means of transportation – car, bicycle, motorcycle and/or as a pedestrian;
  2. Both preserve and support Parker’s small-town character while also proactively planning for future development in the downtown core; and
  3. Plan future investment in parking infrastructure in a way that is sustainable, customer-focused and that enhances the world-class quality of life enjoyed by those who live, work, play and invest in downtown.

Other Public Outreach Efforts

During a trip to the Parker Farmer's Market on July 31 and a public open house at Town  Hall on Aug. 18, staff received feedback on parking in the downtown area from members of the local community. Data presented at and feedback gathered from those outreach opportunities is included here:
