The consultants on Princeton's Parking Study are to present their key findings on the study as well as their draft recommendations, at a community Open House on Monday, November 20, 2017, 6.30 - 8.30 pm at the Nassau Inn in Palmer Square.
Parking spots and bicycle lanes compete for the precious public space on our streets, especially in the downtown area, which is a popular after-school destination for our children. Please contribute with your advocacy for safe bike and walk infrastructure in our town, while keeping in mind the varied mobility needs of all our neighbors.
The excellent consultants from Nelson Nygaard are expected to present some innovative solutions to our parking issues, but residents know our town better than anyone, so bring to the discussion your creative ideas for optimizing downtown access for everyone!
Since the parking study is funded by a grant to promote the economic vitality of our downtown, you may be interested in using this rather long list of studies that show how bike & walk traffic benefit businesses, from large cities like New York to smaller communities like Oakland, CA.
If you need to catch up on what's happened in the parking study so far, slides from previous parking study presentations (pdf) can be downloaded from Princeton's Parking Study page.
