Staff from the Public Works and Planning departments are working with community members to examine the parking needs of the Central Business District (CBD). We are working with parking consultants, Walker Parking, to identify opportunities and implement parking improvements in the CBD.
Our overall goal is to improve effectiveness of parking management and ensure that municipal parking resources are used in a manner that support public parking, public transit, multimodal transportation and CBD economic growth and development. With that goal in mind, city staff, Walker Parking, CBD stakeholders and members of the community are working together on identifying best practices to best serve the CBD community. We are committed to continue to work on Kansas City solutions to a nationwide challenge.
Central Business District Parking and Transportation Survey 2019
KCMO and Walker consultants are preparing a long-range parking plan for the Central Business District. As part of the planning process, a survey was available in May 2019 about parking and travel patterns of CBD business owners, employees, residents, and visitors to gauge their attitudes toward parking- and transportation- related issues. Survey results will be available later in 2019.
