On-Demand: $35.00 for IPMI Members, $85.00 for Non-Members


There is disruption occurring across cities relating to curbside management. Between innovation and intensifying mobility demands, the traditional management of the curb is being jostled to meet those demands. In municipalities across the US, there is recognition to have a Curbside Management Divisions (CMDs) effectuate the wholesale management of the curb.  This webinar looks to highlight a peer review of municipal best practices and engage in an industry dialogue on the municipal curbside management workforce.


  • Identify principles and guidance in building and sustaining a municipal curbside management team
  • Compare needs and demands among municipal entities and industry partners regarding the future of municipal curbside management
  • Identify workforce development principles to recruit and retain curbside management talent


Benito O. Pérez is a Curbside Management & Operations Planning Manager with the District Department of Transportation. In his capacity, he works on managing a team involved with creating, accessing, analyzing, visualizing, disseminating, and working with stakeholders to leverage data for policy development, resource allocation, and operations management of the District’s curbside.



Evian Patterson heads up curbside management in the District of Columbia with a focus on implementing data-driven solutions. He leads teams in managing more than 12,000 smart meter assets for 19,000+ on-street spaces, with 50+ percent of transactions in mobile payments, as well as regulating residential parking. In 2016, he oversaw the expansion of the parking division for next-generation curbside management operations to include access for taxis, buses, freight, and transportation network companies.

High-Emitting Vehicle? Pay More for Parking

Drivers who park in London’s financial district may look to use transit or upgrade older vehicles thanks to a new regulation that has drivers of high-emitting vehicles paying an extra tax to park.

Because of the district’s adoption of an app that knows the difference between, say, a hybrid and a diesel vehicle, on-street parkers will pay different rates depending on how much their vehicle pollutes the air. It’s not a huge difference–about 11 cents (U.S.) per hour–but enough that the media, at least, is taking notice.  Drivers who opt to pay in cash rather than using the cashless app will also pay the higher rates.

About 8,000 people live in the district and 400,000 work there. Read more here.
