The Municipal Parking Perspective - A PIE 2022 Seminar
The Municipal Parking Perspective will consider how ideas and concepts should be evaluated to transform them into practical, realistic solutions. We will introduce the types of questions that you should ask, clever tips and tricks for framing solutions, as well as the importance of relying upon data when parking becomes too political. Rather than conceding to band-aid solutions or pushing a problem from one area to another it is important to consider parking management comprehensively. The interactive session will incorporate a variety of municipal perspectives which will allow you the opportunity to learn from their direct experience and role within the municipality.
