The 2019 National Parking Association Convention & Expo will be held October 21-24 in Orlando, FL, to bring together parking professionals from across the country to discuss industry trends and best practices. David Taxman, P.E. (Fort Lauderdale), along with parking managers from the City of Clearwater, FL will present a detailed case study of how the City maximized its public and private parking capacity and improved mobility operations. Using a masterplan and parking study approach, the City addressed shared parking needs, event parking management, payment solutions, and new uses for technology.
The presentation will highlight how the City identified opportunities for shared parking among private parking facilities and established benchmarking for parking facilities in Florida that incorporate art, mixed-uses, and sustainable features. The discussion also will address strategies to maximize the potential of existing facilities, analyze site selection, manage event parking, and improve operations.
