- This includes the entirety of Weaver Street, and Carr St on both sides of Greensboro St
- This also includes Jones Ferry Rd and Laurel Ave near the Farmers Market
This planning process will include a summary of total parking spaces and how they are used, an estimate of future demand for parking, recommendations for improving parking management, as well as considerations for walking, bicycling, and riding transit to/from and within downtown Carrboro. During this process public involvement will be essential to convey the locations of parking challenges, perspectives from those who regularly experience these parking challenges, and a survey or Carrboro residents.
Everyone! Meaningful and broad-reaching public engagement is a critical component of this project. If you visit Carrboro for the Farmers Market, Carr Mill Mall, the Cat’s Cradle, or any of the restaurants, shops, and other attractions regardless of whether you drive and park, we want your input. Downtown merchants and employees are likewise encouraged to get involved because you experience the unique parking challenges of Carrboro on a regular basis.
The consultant team will facilitate interactive discussions in-person and online to collect information and feedback. In addition to identifying parking challenges, citizens will be asked to strategize potential solutions that can be conveyed to Town administrators. All of this feedback will be used by the consultant team to improve parking, walking, bicycling and transit.
