Board Meeting round-up

October 2021: Regular Board Meeting

On Tuesday, October 19, 2021, the Philadelphia Parking Authority’s Board met for a special board meeting. The meeting agenda along with the Board approved motions can be found here.

After analyzing parking trends, researching best practices, and talking to businesses, the City's Office of Transportation, Infrastructure and Sustainability (OTIS) determined that the policy of relaxed enforcement is counter-productive. The best practice for on-street parking management says that there should be one or two open spots on every block. This allows residents to find a spot and patronize businesses without excessive circling the block. Similar programs, such as free parking on Wednesdays or First-Fridays were discontinued in the past without negative impacts. Free parking on Saturdays in December encouraged all-day on-street parking while discouraging the turnover that is needed for customers to find a spot and start shopping. The City will continue to work with the PPA and our businesses to ensure the best accessibility to our incredible shopping districts.
