Competing for the Curb: Can On-street Parking Management Survive?
Competition for curb space requires new approaches to on-street parking management. In recent years, the planners find ourselves competing with TNCs, bicycles, delivery trucks, parklets, scooters, and pop-ups. Many planners view “storing cars on the street” as the lowest priority for the curb space. In this presentation, attendees will sort out the competitive uses for the curb and discuss how we can develop policies to manage the curb effectively.
- Define competition for curb space.
- Develop criteria to evaluate alternative uses of the curb.
- Develop strategies for resolving conflicting priorities for the curb.
