Parking Sounding Board

To provide a forum for direct engagement in developing parking programs and rates, SDOT formed a Parking Sounding Board in 2011. The group is made up of a variety of representatives - from private parking operators to members of community councils and neighborhood chamber groups.

Because parking policy affects businesses, individuals, and traffic flows, the Parking Sounding Board currently provides input on of the implications of time-of-day pricing and other parking pricing strategies. In 2014 the Sounding Board will:

  • Evaluate time-of-day parking pricing methods and the potential implications this would have for other parking management strategies, such as seasonal rates and event parking.
  • Review the data and methodology from the City's annual parking study.
  • Evaluate new pay station features and capabilities.
  • Provide feedback concerning community engagement and public education about new parking management strategies and conditions.
