CONTACT INFORMATION:   Annette D. Stone, AICP Director of  Economic and Community Development astone@townofcarrboro.org <mailto:astone@townofcarrboro.org> (919) 918 7319; Patricia McGuire, AICP Director of Planning and Inspections pmcguire@townofcarrboro.org <mailto:pmcguire@townofcarrboro.org> (919) 918 - 7327 

 

INFORMATION:   At the June 11, 2019 meeting the Board of Aldermen directed staff to either conduct in-house or seek out consulting services to design a paid-for-parking program and how to implement enforcement of parking in the downtown, including options for the private lot owners to participate in the program and the enforcement.  Scenarios were to include a deck and without a deck.  The study should also provide assessments of how to pay for these projects. 

 

During the summer staff assessed current workloads and determined a consultant would be best able to fulfill the Board’s directive.  Staff crafted an RFP (Attachment1) and sent it out on August 12th.   Based on the responses to the RFP, the cost of the study will be approximately $48,000.

 

Staff will summarize information presented at the June 11th meeting and review the scope of services for the paid parking and enforcement study, for the Board’s discussion. 

 

FISCAL & STAFF IMPACT:  The cost of the study is $48,000 +/- plus staff time. 

 

RECOMMENDATION:  Staff recommends the Board discuss the item.
