Parking study results to be unveiled at open house

JACKSON HOLE, WYO – The Town of Jackson announced it has completed an extensive parking study and will present the findings at an open house scheduled for next week.

In December 2017, the Town Council approved a contract with Kimley-Horn, LLC to study parking in the downtown core district and to provide a town-wide parking and mobility framework. Parking counts were conducted in July 2018 adding to other data, which was collected throughout the year.

It will be interesting to see the results, particularly after a private survey released this past summer boldly declared Jackson is “way overparked.”

“Parking is a key component of our overall transportation and quality of life here in Jackson, and it’s critical that we have accurate and robust data to report to the community and to the Town Council,” Planning Director Tyler Sinclair said. “It’s also very important for us to hear community member’s ideas and input regarding parking.”

The open house will provide an overview of the data collected and explain the next steps in the process. A formal presentation of the findings will begin at 6pm followed by a question and answer session.

The open house is Wednesday, October 24, from 6-9pm at The Wort Hotel in the Jackson Room. All members of the community are invited to attend.
