Association Description

The California Public Parking Association (CPPA) is purposed to advance the public parking profession in the state by providing a forum for its members to interact, exchange ideas and information, and to provide technical and legislative support.

In the mid-1980s a small group of municipal parking program managers from both Northern and Southern California recognized a need for a new organization to foster communication and information sharing between parking professionals in California. In April 1985 they organized the first California Public Parking Association conference in the City of Monterey. Over 100 parking program representatives and suppliers throughout California attended the event. During the conference the CPPA’s first business meeting was held. As a result of this meeting the CPPA was formally created.

David T. Downey, CAE, Assoc. AIA, President & CEO

Member Description

Since 1970, property and business owners in cities throughout North America have realized that revitalizing and sustaining vibrant downtowns, city centers and neighborhood districts requires special attention beyond the services city administrations could provide alone. These private-sector owners came together, with funding from the property and business owners, to form nonprofit management associations which deliver key services and activities within the boundaries of their districts. These place management organizations are often called Business Improvement Districts (BIDs), Business Improvement Areas (BIAs), Partnerships and Alliances.

 Place management professionals affect significant change in every major metropolitan area in North America in an industry that is growing rapidly around the globe. They develop tools and strategies addressing a broad range of issues impacting how people live, work and play in cities, and manage these growing districts to help create vital, healthy, thriving cities for everyone — from residents to tourists to business owners. They are downtown champions who bring urban centers to life.

Association Description

The International Downtown Association is the premier organization for urban place professionals who are shaping and activating dynamic city center districts. We represent an industry of more than 2,500 place management organizations, employing 100,000 people throughout North America and growing rapidly around the world. Founded in 1954, IDA is a resource center for ideas and innovative best practices in urban place management. For more information, visit www.downtown.org.

Association Description

The California Transportation Commission (CTC) was established in 1978 by Assembly Bill 402 (Ingalls) out of a growing concern for a single, unified California transportation policy. The Commission replaced and assumed the responsibilities of four independent bodies: The California Highway Commission, the State Transportation Board, the State Aeronautics Board, and the California Toll Bridge Authority.

In March 1984, more than 100 industry people and vendors gathered in Monterey, CA, to discuss mutual concerns in the field of parking management and control. As a result of this meeting, the California Public Parking Association was created.
The CPPA has established the following organizational goals: To build and maintain a statewide organization of parking professionals; to foster mutual support among members and promote and develop parking management as a profession; to inform and support members in dealing with and solving parking problems; to provide an understanding of parking principles and practices through information sharing, education and training; to act as a unifying force in the state of California to monitor, advocate, and promote parking related legislation which will aid and benefit members in the performance of their jobs.

The CPPA has successfully sponsored and provided support or opposition for legislation affecting association members and employs a full-time lobbyist in Sacramento.
