How can parking in downtown Everett be better for all?
What do you think of the parking situation in downtown Everett?
Does it limit your trips? Keep you from doing business, dining or visiting downtown Everett?
The City of Everett has launched a survey to find out what people think about parking downtown.
Should the city consider bringing back paid parking?
Should time zones be enforced later in the day and on weekends? Are re-parkers a problem?
The city is updating its parking plans and will hold a parking forum later this month to reveal the survey results. Below is a press release issued by the city today with details about the survey and a link so you can give your opinion.
The City of Everett is studying ways to make improvements to parking in the downtown. An update to the Everett Downtown Parking Management Study is underway to examine current parking conditions and explore future solutions.
As an early step, the City is surveying downtown business owners and other employers in the central business district to get their assessment of the current situation, and their ideas about effective parking strategies for the future. The survey asks those who are the downtown’s closest observers how well the current parking system is working, and what steps are needed to reduce parking congestion in the central business district.
The survey is available online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/parkingeverett. The survey is being conducted in partnership with Downtown Everett Association and the Economic Alliance of Snohomish County.
Survey results will be presented at a Parking Forum scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 18, from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at Everett Station – Weyerhaeuser Room. The forum is open to downtown employers and other interested persons.
