Public Meeting: City of Winter Haven Strategic Downtown Parking Study
June 23, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The City of Winter Haven and Walker Consultants invite you to attend the final Public Input Meeting to discuss the current and future conditions for Downtown Winter Haven Parking and Mobility. The Open House Public Meeting will be held at the Gram Parson’s Derry Down on Thursday, June 23 at 6:00 p.m.
Walker Consultants will be on hand to provide a presentation of their findings outlining their segmented approach toward studying various sub-regions of the downtown. They will share the current draft of recommendations to be made to the City Commission. This is the final public feedback opportunity prior to the presentation to the city Commission.
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.
