City hosting seven community parking meetings in seven neighborhoods beginning Tuesday

City officials will share the parking data collected in each respective neighborhood and discuss parking concerns.

Parking is nearly always a contentious issue for urban communities. The stories about parking are most often based on perceptions and stories repeated by neighbors. Recently the city and Richmond 300 commissioned a parking study to get facts about parking in seven different zones of Richmond. Richmond 300 in case you don’t remember is Mayor Stoney’s effort to update the city’s Master Plan.

Starting Tuesday, June 12th there will be meetings to discuss the study.

  • June 12: 8-10A.M. Carytown – Studio Two Three, 3300 W. Clay St.
  • June 12: 6:30-8:30 P.M. Six Points/Brookland Park Highland Park Senior Apartments, 1221 E. Brookland Park Blvd.
  • June 13: 8:30-10:30 A.M.  Scott’s Addition – Studio Two Three, 3300 W. Clay St.
    • The Scott’s Addition meeting will also include a discussion about the Scott’s Addition Circulation Study.

Meeting Objectives:

  1. Share the parking data collected;

These meetings in June are the first of two rounds of public meeting about the Parking Study. At the second round of meetings, which will be in October 2018 (exact dates TBD), we will discuss parking policy recommendations. If you cannot attend these June meetings but still want to learn about this study, contact us at [email protected] or 646-6348. You can also attend Office Hours from 3-5P.M. on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month at City Hall (900 E. Broad St, Room 511). As part of the city-wide Master Plan update, the City is commissioning this Parking Study.
