Time: 7:30 AM - 9:00 AM EDT
Developments usually need parking. Whether provided on-site or nearby, many people drive to their destination and expect to be able to park when they get there. But parking is expensive. Surface spaces in the city can cost up to $10,000 each and structured parking can be over $25,000 a space. Parking can also take up land that could be used for additional net floor area or other amenities. So it’s more important than ever to find that balance. This event brings together professionals from the parking business, local government, and the development world to discuss parking. Should it be free or priced strategically? Should cities require parking or let the market handle it? What about alternatives to driving? Will self-driving cars reduce the need for parking? Join MEREDA on March 14th from 7:30 – 9:00 AM at the Portland Regency Hotel for an interesting discussion about a topic we often take for granted.
