FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Public Workshop to Introduce Results of Draft Downtown Parking Study

St. Petersburg, FL (December 7, 2015) -- The City of St. Petersburg has completed a draft study of the existing and future parking conditions in Downtown and will introduce the preliminary results and recommendations at a public workshop on Wednesday, December 9 from 6:15 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Museum of Fine Arts, 255 Beach Drive NE. The workshop will be interactive, allowing community members to ask questions and provide feedback on the study.

The study focused on 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, including the Edge District.

The public had opportunities to provide input for the study during two public workshops held in July and two online opinion surveys conducted in July and August. 

The outcome of the study will be a plan to meet current and future parking demand in the focus area. The plan will recommend alternatives for solving identified parking issues, which could include parking regulation modifications, adding parking spaces in certain locations, as well as strategies for managing existing parking resources. The city engaged national parking consultant, Kimley Horn & Associates, to perform the study and assist the city and public in developing the plan.  

Workshop participants can park at no cost in the Sundial Garage located at 117 2nd Street N. Those who park in the Sundial Garage are asked to bring their garage parking ticket to the workshop to be validated for free parking.

Anyone interested in learning about the draft study results and recommendations is encouraged to attend the workshop. There will be opportunity for public comment at the workshop.
