Resort Area Parking Strategy


In July 2012 City Council approved a "Resolution for Comprehensive Parking Strategy for the Oceanfront Resort Area." As a result of that resolution, the Resort Area Parking Strategy was developed. 

The Resort Area Parking Strategy is a collaborative effort that used the combined input of City staff, local stakeholders, elected officials, and our citizens to develop strategies and recommendations for the future of parking in the resort area. The document provides the City with a long-term framework of how to provide a successful parking program for the resort area that will meet the parking needs as growth and revitalization of the area continue to thrive and develop. ​

Through a prioritization process, the City can implement actions over time in a logical, phased manner that will allow them to build the foundation of a methodical and successful parking program. Several improvements that have been implemented include: 
  • creating a logo for branding our parking 
  • developing a code of conduct for employee Parking Permit holders 
  • creating more parking inventory by opening the City Treasurer’s lot (19th Street and Arctic Avenue) for employee permit parking 
  • improving technology capabilities by accepting debit or credit cards for all on-street parking 
  • improving lighting on 16th Street
  • providing free parking in City facilities for employees with resort permit parking program passes, and​
  • creating an Advisory Board to discuss parking issues
In addition, the Parkmobile app allows users to make payments by phone, and the ParkMe app helps locate available parking spaces.
