INFORMATION: At the December 10, 2013 Board of Aldermen meeting, after a discussion on parking enforcement in the Downtown, the Board directed staff to organize a parking summit to bring businesses and property owners together to discuss shared parking.  Staff has developed a format and a schedule to accommodate as many businesses and property owners, as possible.  Attached is a copy of the notice that will go to downtown businesses on Wednesday January 15th with comments from the Board of Aldermen.  
 
The format allows for three repetitive sessions to be held in the Century Center, January 31, 2014 with sessions starting at 9:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.  Participants can attend one, two or all three sessions, if they chose.   Staff intends to keep the focus for this parking summit very narrow and directed at shared parking.  If successful, this format may be used to address some of the other many facets of downtown parking.
 
FISCAL & STAFF IMPACT: Minimal cost to host an all-day meeting.  
 
RECOMMENDATION:r The recommendation is the Board consider this approach and comment on whether or not staff is meeting the intention of having such a parking summit.
