Danville creates River District parking online survey

Posted: Updated:

City of Danville news release


The city of Danville is asking citizens to participate in an online survey regarding parking conditions in the River District.

Citizens can access the survey at www.danville-va.gov.  The poll link is located on the left rail of the website.

"Your participation in this survey will help us understand how you see and experience parking from your individual perspective," said Amanda Paez, management analyst for the city of Danville and project leader for the parking study.

The survey period ends Feb. 28. Paez said the city will provide the results of the online survey to consultants for analysis.

The survey will take approximately five to 10 minutes to complete.

The questions include the following samples:

When you park in the River District, how far do you typically park from your destination?
When you park in the River District, what is your most important consideration?
How would you describe the overall availability of parking in the River District?

The survey also allows the opportunity for citizens to provide additional information or comment about parking in the River District.

Last week, the city publicly launched the parking study at a public forum, where Paez outlined the scope of the study, introduced the consultants, and allowed citizens to share their ideas and concerns.

The city selected Land Planning Design Associates (LPDA) and Carl Walker Inc. as consultants for the study. LPDA is a Virginia-based landscape architecture and planning consulting firm that designed to River District streetscape project that is under way.

Carl Walker Inc. is an engineering and parking consulting firm that has clients nationwide. The company has eight offices across the nation, including offices in Atlanta.

The study not only will address current parking conditions, but it will help the city to plan how best to meet future parking needs.

The consultants will inventory and analyze the parking situation, and then present their findings and recommend strategies and goals to address key questions.

Key questions include what are the current parking resources and how they are being used, what does the future hold and how can the city plan to meet parking needs and manage those needs.  The study will look at the expected patterns of new development, the likely mix of new construction vs. re-use of existing buildings, and how the dynamics will change over time.

Consultants expect to complete the study by the end of March.
