FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - July 17, 2015

 City invites public input on downtown parking at public workshops

The City of St. Petersburg has begun a study of parking conditions in the downtown area and is asking for the public’s help in identifying parking issues and opportunities. Two public workshops are scheduled (see details below). The workshops will be interactive, allowing community members to share their downtown parking experiences and suggest enhancements.

The study will look at parking demand and supply in the area generally from 5th Ave N to 5th Ave S between Tampa Bay and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. St. The study area also includes the area between Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. St and I-275 from one block north of 1st Avenue N to one block south of 1st Ave S.

The outcome of the study will be a plan to meet current and future parking demand in the study area. The plan will recommend alternatives for solving identified parking issues, as well as strategies for managing existing parking resources. The city has hired Kimley Horn to conduct the study and provide recommendations.
