Parking is a vital design component of New Urbanism, but requires comprehensive thought for planning and subsequent operations. Suburban sprawl's parking policies thwart compact urban placemaking. Too much parking and the scale of a development is blown out; too little and places starve for lack of financing and approvals. How do we strike a balance? How can a designer know if it is more cost effective to make better use of existing parking than build new? Shared parking sounds like a good solution, but how does one decide on the right number to build, and craft the legal agreements to make it work? How do innovations like car-sharing programs, parking wayfinding technology, and social media impact how many spaces should be built and how they should be managed? How can parking be designed so that it's easy to find for motorists and minimizes negative impacts on pedestrians and property values?

This session will begin with case studies for Seaside, Florida and Savannah, Georgia, where parking solutions were provided to maximize supply and use, while preserving the City's compact urban, walkable structure. These case studies will highlight innovative parking management recommendations, physical on-street parking design and steps to avoiding suburban policy creep. Next, specific guidance will be provided on the latest tools for estimating actual parking demand, managing parking effectively, and designing parking graciously. Finally, there will be time for participants to talk directly with experts to solve specific parking problems in local communities.
