Concord downtown parking study tries to find ways to collect more money
CONCORD - A new parking study recommends restructuring rates, eliminating meter time limits and restructuring the garages to make downtown Concord more consumer friendly.
The study, which was done to try to recuperate more money for the parking fund, also recommends improving pedestrian and bicyclist accessibility.
The findings of the study were presented to the public last week.
The consultants determined that out of 10,000 parking spaces in downtown, less than 60 percent is utilized during peak times on weekdays. That percentage drops to 30 percent on weekends.
A more formal presentation will be given to the City Council.
