Maximize Use of On-Street Parking

Identify and take advantage of opportunities to add on-street parking in areas where additional parking is most needed. This may include changing parallel parking to angle parking, converting underused medians, loading areas, turn lanes, or traffic lanes for parking, or narrowing wide sidewalks to add parking. Also adopt measures that encourage frequent turnover of the high-demand on-street parking spaces in busy commercial districts. This may include enforcing strict parking time limits or installing parking meters.
