Developing a Strategic Plan for Your Parking Operation

In 2014, IPI partnered with Governing Magazine to create a survey that identified top trends in parking and transportation. According to the magazine’s membership – which consists of key municipal leadership and staff – “Developing a Parking Strategic Plan” was the top area of interest.
Parking Strategic Plans began to appear within the parking world about a decade ago as a tool to integrate a variety of other plans.  Strategic plans, while they also address issues related to an organization’s vision and mission, ultimately tend to be focused on implementation and therefore are “action plan” oriented. In this interactive webinar, participants will have the opportunity to learn about parking strategic planning from some of the industry’s leading consultants and practitioners.

  • Become familiar with the basics of parking strategic planning
  • Learn about both current best practices and the latest Innovation in parking strategic plans from around the country
  • Gain insight into how to parking strategic plans can be designed as “action plans” that can take your program to the next level
