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.
