Tempe, AZ – The City of Tempe is inviting residents, businesses and visitors who frequent downtown Tempe to participate in an online survey about their downtown parking experiences. Two public open house events also will be held in March.

A survey with two parts is now available at http://svy.mk/1mJphMJ. One survey is geared toward business owners and asks downtown shops, restaurants and offices about their numbers of employees, customers, peak hours of operation, delivery schedules and perceptions of parking. The second survey is geared toward downtown patrons and residents, and asks them how they travel to the Mill Avenue area, how often, for how long and whether they experience parking issues. Members of the public have until March 28 to fill out one or both surveys.

The survey is part of a study to determine strategies to improve future parking on and around Mill Avenue. Phoenix-based Kimley-Horn and Associates is working with the city and the Downtown Tempe Community to formulate the Downtown Tempe Strategic Parking Plan.

Learn more about the plan and share your input at either of two open house events on March 24 and March 28, from 3-7 p.m., in the Don Cassano Community Room on the second floor of the Tempe Transportation Center, 200 E. Fifth St.

The City Council discussed downtown parking at its Issue Review Session on Oct. 24, 2013. Video and materials from the meeting are below.
