The City seeks the services of a qualified parking and mobility consultant to prepare a unified and coordinated parking plan to effectively maximize existing and future public parking availability and utilization within its downtown core. Bound by Avenue D NW to the north, Avenue C SW to the south, 6th Street SW to the west, and 1st Street South to the east, the City currently provides as many as 1,300± public parking spaces under a combined on- and off-street mix. Approximately 270± public parking spaces are being provided by the City’s parking structure located in the central vicinity of 3rd Street NW and Avenue A NW. It has been estimated that this parking inventory is often occupied at 70% during typical peak operating hours.
