[ARCHIVED] Parking Study Open House Tonight
The city of Charleston will host a public open house to present preliminary findings of the Charleston Parking Study survey and collect feedback from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, October 16, 2018 at the Clemson Design Center, located at 701 East Bay Street, Suite 200. The presentation will begin at 6 p.m.
Throughout the duration of the open house, attendees will have the opportunity to offer input on potential parking and mobility strategies, provide written comments and meet with city staff and study team members.
Mayor John Tecklenburg said, “Parking is a key component of our overall transportation and quality of life strategy here in the city, and it’s critical that we get it right. That’s why it’s so important for us to hear our citizens’ ideas and input now, before any final decisions are made.”
The city initiated the Charleston Parking Study earlier this year to update its parking system for the first time in 20 years. The study examines current and future parking trends for Charleston’s residents, businesses, and employees and will develop parking and mobility management recommendations appropriate for the community.
Attendees are asked to park in the gravel lot on Drake and East Bay Streets. A shuttle will be available from 5 to 6:30 p.m. and will run a continuous loop from the parking lot to the front lobby door. After 6:30 p.m., attendees can contact Security Services at 843-246-6119 for transportation or escort to the lot.
