Downtown Parking Management Plan

Successful management of parking in downtown Gilroy contributes to a prosperous and vibrant downtown. The goal of the Downtown Parking Management Plan (DPMP) is to establish successful management of parking in downtown Gilroy in an effort to provide easier access to and foster continued economic development in the historic downtown area. As part of this process, a variety of efforts have been undertaken, including evaluating existing parking conditions, analyzing current and future parking demand, and developing parking management strategies and recommendations.

The Draft Downtown Parking Management Plan was submitted to the City Council on December 4, 2023. Comments received from the Council on that date will be incorporated into a Final Draft to be adopted by the Council at a future meeting.
