Session Description:
Did you know parking consumers 25% of the land in our cities? Are we being efficient with parking or can we do better? As the sharing economy grows (think Uber, bikeshare, autonomous vehicles), parking dynamics are shifting dramatically. Planners should know about new techniques for getting the most out of the parking we do provide, while freeing up land for economic development and more productive uses. Come learn about both easy and aggressive innovative parking strategies and some tough lessons learned along the way.

Ted Knowlton is Deputy Director of the Wasatch Front Regional Council, and Adjunct Professor at the University of Utah, a Planning Commissioner, and the V.P of APA Utah. He has 25 years of experience on parking innovations.

Ryan Hales is a transportation consultant with Hales Engineering. Ryan has worked at the front of a variety of private and public clients to develop parking solutions that work across Utah.

Nick Norris, Planning Manager with Salt Lake City, has been at the front of a variety of parking and zoning innovations, which have facilitated significant economic development and the rebirth of streets like 400 South.
