The HPCA has worked closely with the City to develop a plan to address the overflow issues in China Bridge Parking Garage. Our goal is to keep customers coming to the street throughout the evening hours.
It is important to know that businesses in Historic Park City employ over 1,020 employees nightly and building more parking requires funding and is a long term solution that is being explored.
Our plan is to amend this program further based on your comments and thoughts prior to the City Council's review in November for implementation on December 15, 2014.

Seasonal Weekend Parking Capacity
Additional research shows that the perception of parking capacity and actual parking capacity are not equal. The perception of parking capacity occurs when parking is at 70% of capacity. When capacity perception is overlaid on top of actual capacity, the perception of our parking challenges appears to be greater than it actually is.
Our goal is to keep customers coming to the street throughout the evening hours
