Parking Studies & Management Plans
Our skills and experience in parking planning, operations, management, and design provide value to public and private clients alike. Municipalities, parking authorities, downtown associations, and redevelopment agencies frequently seek KAI's service to conduct parking utilization studies, provide rate assessments, and prepare parking plans or parking management plans. Private enterprises frequently hire KAI to size off-street parking facilities, design the layout and lighting, and to evaluate site plans for parking adequacy and safety of circulation patterns. Public and private institutions rely on our expertise in parking management, particularly in concert with transportation demand management, to prepare or update existing management plans. Each parking plan is harmonized with goals and policies for sustainability to ensure that parking facilities are appropriately sized and managed to be sound fiscal investments. Parking is a form of access and must be provided in balance with other means of access, such as walking, biking, and riding transit.
