Written by an expert in parking management, Parking Management for Smart Growth shows how to manage on- and off-street parking supplies to achieve Smart Growth. In the last 50 years, parking management has grown from a minor aspect of local policy and regulation to a central position in the provision of transportation access. The higher densities, tight land supplies, mixed land uses, environmental and social concerns, and alternative transportation modes of Smart Growth demand a different approach - actively managed parking. This book offers a set of tools and a method for strategic parking management so that communities can better use parking resources and avoid overbuilding parking. It explores new opportunities for making the most from every parking space in a sharing economy and taking advantage of new digital parking tools to increase user interaction and satisfaction. Examples are provided of successful approaches for parking management, from London to Pasadena. At its essence, the book provides a path forward for strategic parking management in a new era of tighter parking supplies.
