Skip Thursday’s Happy Hour…Let’s Talk Parking!

You know that parking is a premium on Capitol Hill and First Hill. We know it too.

That’s why SDOT’s Community Parking Program is actively engaging with residents, businesses, and community groups in these neighborhoods to figure out how to make it better.

Earlier this year, SDOT collected on-street parking data in Capitol Hill and First Hill to get a feel for how long people are staying in a spot and how full the streets are.  We’ve been sharing the data with community groups and have come up with a few options to change and improve the situation.

We’ll be presenting these ideas at a Capitol Hill & First Hill Parking Open House on Thursday, September 17 from 6 to 8PM at First Baptist Church (1111 Harvard Ave). Join us to discuss the challenges and opportunities, to comment on proposals, and to chat with SDOT parking staff.  It’s sure to be a good time. We’re talking parking, after all.

Check out this flyer for more details and staff contact information. You can also check out the Community Parking Program’s website for more info on where else we’re working.
