Best Practice: Strategic Planning for Parking & Transportation Facilities

Mobility management facilities, especially those featuring hard infrastructure, such as parking garages, are not “set-it-and-forget-it” assets. They need to be actively managed over time to avoid calamitous problems and expenses.

John Dorsett, of Indianapolis-based Walker Parking Consultants, suggests a five year strategic plan approach in which, “. . . parking resources are evaluated, areas needing structural and operational improvement are identified, and plans are made to complete those improvements.”
