Why does the City need to change or increase parking capacity downtown?

While current downtown parking capacity is generally adequate in some areas, there are some blocks and lots where parking is extremely congested and discourages some visitors/shoppers. The redevelopment initiatives associated with the Make Ogden plan will:

  • Reduce existing surface parking,
  • Increase business and residential activities,
  • Increase the existing problem of limited prime retail spaces on 25th Street, and
  • Increase the overall parking demand and need for related new parking structures. 

Therefore, the City is developing a parking management strategy that will support planned development downtown and enhance transportation access for visitors, residents and businesses.
