This ordinance authorizes the Director of Public Service to enter into a professional services contract with Kimley-Horn and Associates, Inc. in the amount of up to $300,000.00 for the Strategic Parking Plan 2.0 project.

The intent of this project is to provide the City of Columbus, Department of Public Service, additional resources to update the 2019 Strategic Parking Plan to guide the next 5 years of public parking policies and investments. The study will provide an updated assessment of parking demand in the city’s high growth neighborhoods to understand the impacts of post-pandemic market dynamics. It will provide recommendations to proactively manage parking and mobility options based on ‘new normal’ conditions and emerging trends. Areas of focus will include creation of a Downtown Central Business District strategy for leveraging the city’s parking garage assets to promote economic development and advance the growth vision of the Downtown Columbus Strategic Plan, including guidelines for future structured parking investments. This contract will coordinate data collection and advisory services with a number of other ongoing projects being led by the Department of Public Service and external partners. These include the Downtown Multimodal Transportation Study, LinkUS Bus Rapid Transit Corridors, Livingston Avenue Corridor Improvements, Columbus Bikeways & Micromobility Plan, the German Village Parking Management Plan, the Columbus Zoning Code Update, and the CDDC’s study of downtown parking demand.
