Downtown Parking Management Plan

The City of Gilroy is kicking off the Downtown Parking Management Plan.   Successful management of parking in downtown Gilroy is critical to the success of the downtown area. This study will include analyzing the existing conditions, completing a current and future parking demand analysis, and developing parking management strategies and recommendations.  

Overall objectives for this project include:

  1. Evaluating current parking conditions in the downtown area, including supply and demand for public and private parking.
  2. Assessing the current operational practices for the City’s parking programs and identifying potential improvements.
  3. Estimating the future parking demand in the downtown area based on known and projected future development.
  4. Developing strategies for meeting current and expected future parking demand.
  5. Identifying funding/revenue opportunities.

Community Engagement 

This effort will include a robust community engagement process with a variety of opportunities for the community and businesses to give feedback. The project team will be meeting with community groups as well as merchants, property owners, residents, and the community as a whole.  

The process will incorporate multiple methods to effectively reach out to the community:

  • Stakeholder Interviews
  • Interactive Questionnaire
  • Project booths at community events
  • Community Workshop
  • Social Media Posts
  • Public Hearings

Next steps

The first step is data collection.  You may see project team members and parking data collection team members around downtown throughout this process.   These team members will have a letter from the City to verify they are part of this parking effort.
