2019 Parking Study Results

City of Lancaster Supply/Demand and Forecasting Study

A new parking supply/demand and forecasting study was commissioned by the City of Lancaster, the Lancaster Parking Authority (LPA), and the Lancaster Housing Opportunity Partnership (LHOP)/SoWe, in October 2018. It was the first parking study of the Central Business District in more than 10 years, and the first to look at parking in some residential neighborhoods.

After a competitive RFP process, Kimley-Horn and Associates, Inc., was chosen to complete the study.

The study included: a block-by-block GIS inventory of on-street and off-street parking spaces in the three geographic sections; public outreach sessions, including two in each neighborhood; an online public survey; a comparison of parking demand with current parking supply and identification of parking deficits and surpluses; a projection of future parking surplus and deficit conditions, looking at impact of know or proposed development; an analysis of current and future transportation options such as Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) such as Uber and Lyft, biking, and other curbside management initiatives.

Final reports were presented in May 2019, and are linked below:
