Downtown Midland is growing and changing - and that’s a good thing! With more events, activities, new businesses, and opportunities to connect downtown, the City of Midland wants to ensure that access to these amenities grows right along with it.
To help manage and improve today’s parking conditions and plan for tomorrow, the Downtown Development Authority has hired parking consulting firm Rich & Associates to conduct a parking study. This study does the following:
Observes current parking conditions in Downtown Midland
Inventories and assesses existing Downtown parking
Collects input from Downtown businesses and stakeholders, including residents
Surveys Downtown visitors
Check this page frequently and follow Downtown Midland on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for more information and study results as it progresses.
How Can I Get Involved?
Consultants will be soliciting feedback from residents in two ways: via in-person public input sessions and via an online survey.
In-person public input sessions will be held on:
Tuesday, August 20, 2019
11 a.m. - 1 p.m. and 5 - 7 p.m.
Conference Room B of Midland City Hall (333 W. Ellsworth Street)
Consultants from Rich & Associates will be on hand to collect public input, share study data and parking information, and talk with visitors. All drop-in sessions will be an informal discussion with no set agenda or presentation, so individuals are invited to stop by at any time during the scheduled sessions.
In addition to the public input sessions, an online survey about downtown parking availability and improvements is available for residents to submit their feedback. Click the graphic at the top of this page or the button below to access the survey.
Before the study came to fruition, it was presented to and approved by the Downtown Development Authority Board. Watch the video below to view a detailed presentation about the parking study at the May 8, 2019 DDA Board meeting. (Discussion of the parking study begins at the 49:30 mark.)
