The foundation of a parking supply and demand study is an inventory of the existing supply. By examining the
parking supply and comparing it to the parking demand, we quantify the parking surplus or deficit that exists
or potentially will exist with future development.

The City provided Walker with a detailed inventory of the existing parking supply for this study. We field
verified the study area supply and made minor changes to the stated totals based upon the field survey results.
Assuming our adjusted totals as shown in the table below, a total of 2,522 ± parking spaces reside within the
study area4

We categorized the inventoried supply as either on-street (located on the north, south, east or west side of
each street respectively) or off-street (public, private or permit as designated). Figure

Figure 2222 on the following page

graphically depicts the percentage of spaces allocated to on and off-street parking.

Itemized by type, the actual study area spaces are as follows: 585 ± or 23 percent on-street and 1,937 ± or
77 percent off-street (951 private, 807 permit and 179 public spaces). The private and permitted off-street
spaces (1,758 ±) are signed for restricted-use and are meant to serve a particular business, group of
businesses or permit holder.
