Downtown parking study aims to define needs, offer options

As more amenities and events come to Downtown Castle Rock, it’s increasingly important for the Town to proactively plan to meet the community’s parking and access needs.

It’s for this reason that the Town and the Downtown Alliance recently partnered with parking experts at Kimley-Horn and Assoc. to create a Downtown Castle Rock Strategic Parking Plan.

Public participation in the planning effort will formally kick off July 7, when a public meeting to introduce the study will be held at the Philip S. Miller Library, 100 S. Wilcox St. There will be a brief overview of the study process and a presentation on innovative parking management, followed by a question and answer session, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the library’s Castle Rock Bank Room East.

The main goal of the parking study is to identify solutions to ensure residents and visitors can continue to access Downtown Castle Rock safely and efficiently using their preferred means of transportation – car, bicycle, motorcycle and/or as a pedestrian.

The study will include a thorough data collection effort to analyze demand for the Town’s current public and private parking supplies. This data will be used, along with other input, to develop a parking strategic plan that will provide near- and long-term strategies to maximize parking and access within Downtown Castle Rock.

Public outreach will be an integral part of the study, which is expected to last through the end of the year. At each stage of the process, a variety of ways for community members to share their thoughts, perceptions and concerns about parking and mobility will be offered, including via online survey and at in-person meetings. As the study progresses, information on these opportunities will be kept current at CRgov.com/parkingstudy. As the project progresses, information will be available online at CRgov.com/parkingstudy.
