Funded by a CMAQ (Congestion Mitigation Air Quality) grant, Park Once is a parking enhancement concept designed to reduce traffic congestion and improve visitor friendliness. Park Once encourages downtown employees and visitors to only park once during their visit by relying on pedestrian way-finding signage, real-time parking signage and public forms of transportation. Elements of the Park Once concept include:
- Newly installed pedestrian way-finding signs, which divide downtown into districts and steer visitors to key points of interest.
- Static parking signs similar to directional signage that guide visitors to parking options.
- Dynamic parking signs that will direct drivers to garages in a particular downtown district and provide real-time information on the number of parking spaces available.
