The vast majority of Walker’s design, consulting and study projects for governmental entities have been performed at the municipal level and involve providing parking for the public parker. Parking is an important part of every community’s infrastructure and no matter what side of the personal vehicle debate you are on, it (parking) will continue to be necessary for some time. It is our goal to maximize the asset through excellent design, planning and management practices.
Public parking must serve numerous user groups. Visitors, shoppers, employees of local businesses, commuters, and others have unique parking characteristics and needs. There are short-term/long-term parkers, first time parkers, employee parkers, transient and monthly parkers – the list goes on… All of these users must be considered during the study, planning and design process.
