The City of Newark is seeking input from businesses and residents on downtown parking.
On Tuesday, two public workshops will be conducted in a “drop-in” format from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. and from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
The format is designed to lead to open discussions with the city’s consultant, Kimley-Horn, and ensures participation from multiple groups.
“The city understands that parking is a complex issue with varying and sometimes conflicting viewpoints and needs. Diversity of input will be critical in creating a parking plan that works for everyone that visits downtown Newark,” a release stated.
The city has made upgrades to parking access and has retained Kimley-Horn to explore various strategies that maximize the benefits of the technology for residents, business owners, and the public.
Discussion points will be based on the city’s Comprehensive Parking Plan Update and will include parking management, shared parking agreements, potential partnerships with the University of Delaware and shuttle operations.
Additionally, a review of zoning codes will be conducted to support the required changes necessary to meet the goals of the City’s parking program.
