Casper Parking Plan

What is the Casper Urban Center Strategic Parking Plan?
The goal of this project is to find parking solutions for a growing Downtown and Old Yellowstone District. The Plan will serve as a policy, management, and planning guide for future development and management of parking and public rights-of-way by:
  • Undergoing a collaborative process between the City of Casper, its partners, residents, property owners, and businesses;
  • Understanding current parking conditions as well as future needs as we continue to grow;
  • Developing an overall 5-10 year vision to guide parking management and streetscape design in Downtown Casper and the Old Yellowstone District. This will be done with respect to larger land development and transportation contexts, while also providing direction for day-to-day parking decisions;
  • Seeking out innovative and new parking opportunities;
  • Developing strategies, designs, and specific action items that address how to achieve that vision.

What are we up to now?

The project team is currently focused on Data Analysis and completing a Supply/Demand Assessment. Reviewing existing conditions is critical for the Parking Plan and will allow us to better understand existing parking assets, usage patterns, and overall parking demand needs for the community.

 

Proper data collection is the foundation of any good parking study and can vary from simple inventories to large-scale turnover and occupancy analysis. The following actions are currently taking place:

 

Parking Inventory – Includes parking inventory counts for downtown and Old Yellowstone District including public and private parking assets. This will help the project team better understand the overall distribution of available parking and the location of parking types such as on- and off-street supply, residential parking, permit management areas, accessible parking, reserved and non-reserved contract parking, high-turnover retail and restaurant spaces, and more. Results will be illustrated in charts and maps that show the number and location of public and private parking spaces in the downtown area.

 

Parking Occupancy Counts – The project team is also assessing parking space utilization for the downtown including documenting hourly utilization patterns throughout the area for public on- and off-street spaces. This effort will also include parking occupancy counts during normal enforcement hours for both weekday and weekend periods. Full details and collection parameters will be developed during scoping and project kickoff. Results will be illustrated in charts and maps that show the level of occupancy by block for different times of day.

 

Parking Turnover and Duration Study – Finally, the project team is assessing the hourly turnover of high-demand short-term parking spaces. We will document results in charts and heat map graphics that show the number of vehicles that are accommodated and hourly turnover by type of space.
