Local businesses leaders and community members are invited to discuss parking meters downtown at a brown-bag luncheon at noon Wednesday. Also on the agenda are management technologies that may be employed as part of the parking management plan for downtown Davis.
The meeting, hosted by Davis Downtown, will run from noon to 1 p.m. at the Pence Gallery, 212 D St.
At the Dec. 13 Davis City Council meeting, the Davis Downtown Parking Task Force forwarded to the council 19 recommendations for improving and managing parking resources downtown. Included is a recommendation to implement paid parking in a portion of the downtown.
At the brown-bag meeting, participants will discuss various parking meters and the technologies available. The focus will be to understand how each type of parking technology is able to meet usability, reliability, manageability and sustainability requirements.
“Paid parking in downtown Davis is certainly a possibility,” Stewart Savage, executive director of Davis Downtown, said in a news release. “If this specific Downtown Parking Task Force recommendation comes to fruition, it would be best if we were ahead of the curve in understanding parking technology options.”
