Parking guidelines are generally set by local municipalities.
O’Rourke Engineering & Planning understands that these codes may not reflect the true demand of a use and could lead to too many or too few parking spaces. Shared parking analyses can be prepared to demonstrate that multiple users can utilize the same parking supply based on time of day that they need the spaces. Existing sites can be researched to determine the actual parking demands of a given property in relation to the number of unused spaces. Once collected, this data is crucial to creating redevelopment plans for the property without causing any shortage or surplus of essential parking spaces.
