Sustainable Jersey Webinar: How Effective Parking Management Leads to More Livable Communities

August 12, 2015
1:00 pmto2:00 pm

SPEAKERS: 

Teri Jover, Managing Director, New Jersey Future

Jim Constantine, Principal, Looney Ricks Kiss

Jay Muldoon, Metuchen Borough Council Liaison to Parking Authority

 

Parking is a critical piece of a community’s infrastructure. It plays an important role in developing “mixed-use projects” and sustainable transportation.  Parking also has a direct impact on the ability to create compact, healthy communities.

 

Overly restrictive parking requirements can thwart efforts to build walkable communities that require less parking. Too little parking can impact retailers and the financing of residential development. Ultimately, decisions made about parking affect the livability of our communities.

 

This webinar will focus on the new “Effective Parking Management” action that seeks to help New Jersey municipalities “right-size” their parking. It highlights the importance of properly evaluating parking demand and then discusses strategies that municipalities may employ to address their specific parking needs.

 

Learn about:

  • Strategies that work to make existing parking more efficient
  • Strategies that reduce future parking demand
  • Strategies that enhance (or do not hinder) walkability

 

Then hear how Metuchen has successfully utilized these strategies.
