On Street Parking Pockets

July 7th 2023 MDT

All, We’re working on some final street design in our Lakeside project for the large arterial boulevard street. We only want on street parallel parking where it is needed so we don’t have excess street width that isn’t utilized. The adopted section brings the park strip back out to the edge of the lane when there isn’t any parking. We want to break up the parking pockets with some kind of maximum length, with enough park strip between pockets to pull a tree closer to the road. Do you have any rules of thumb or experi ...Continue Reading

RE: [EXTERNAL] Individualized Impact Fee Review
