On The Road Again!
The Rich & Associates Planning Team is hitting the road this summer! With stops in Detroit and Saline MI., Arlington Heights IL., Coeur D’Alene ID., and Benson, NC., we’re sure to be traveling to an area near you! Our planning team continues to provide parking planning, needs assessments and long-term strategic parking plans for clients across North America.
Since 1963 Rich & Associates has produced over 500 parking plans for municipalities, hospitals, universities, developers, airports, and transit facilities. This experience includes parking demand and economic feasibility studies, operational and management plans, parking technology application plans, and existing parking improvement plans.
- In Detroit, MI. our planning team is going to be working with a team studying the need and economic feasibility of a new parking garage to serve City Hall.
- In Downtown Saline, MI. our planning team will be creating a custom plan to provide the future of Downtown Saline with a functional parking system that supports the economic vitality of the community.
- In Arlington Heights, IL. our planning team is updating a parking study the firm conducted in 2002. The update will provide new recommendations on how to manage the parking supply to handle the increased demand and new development in the downtown area. We will also provide recommendations on how to make their current garages more user friendly, with recommendations on signage, wayfinding, lighting, security and overall pedestrian friendliness.
- In Coeur D’Alene, ID. our planning team is returning to the area to conduct a parking study in a district called Midtown. We will provide parking recommendations on how to best manage parking in the current condition and provide several recommendations on how to manage parking as new developments come on line.
- In Benson, NC. our planning team has begun a parking assessment study. We recently concluded public meetings and completed several tasks gathering key data that will be used in assessing and projecting parking conditions downtown. There has been interest in new development in the downtown and staff is looking for a “road map” to layout future plans to properly manage parking through the proposed growth.
