Consultant: More Downtown Parking Than People Realize

By James Lomuscio

David Lapping, whose company recently completed a town-wide, baseline traffic study, today provided additional insights into his findings about downtown traffic and parking that he presented to the Planning and Zoning Commission Thursday night. Image

The Westporter, a principal of Norwalk-based RBA Group, said that the downtown parking crunch on weekends is not as bad as most people think. In fact, he said, many of the 2,500 downtown parking spaces on both sides of the Saugatuck River are underutilized.

That’s because many drivers do not know some of the private lots are open to the public on weekends. “It’s people’s perceptions,” said Lapping. “It’s all relative, and part of this whole master plan is education.”

RBA, hired by the town to create a master plan of development for the downtown, did the traffic and parking study as Phase I of the master plan. Phase II, which focuses specifically on the downtown, is currently underway to prepare for current and future development.
