Parking Policy Challenge – Report on the “Strip” Now Available

A report on the Parking Policy Challenge: Equip the Strip, held on Oct. 12, 2013, is now available.  The report includes the findings of a student-led initiative to provide information to the City of Knoxville related to parking issues for the Cumberland Avenue Corridor Project  You can view the report here:  Policy Challenge Report 1.14.14 ndb.FINAL

Page 15-16 contains a list of recommendations, including improving safety, lighting, appearance, along with encouraging the development of parking apps and sharing of private garages with the public after working hours, similar to the process used for downtown parking garages. Additionally, many suggested locating bike racks near the Strip and adding bike lanes to White and Lake Avenues.  The results of the survey and interviews suggested a need for education and promotion of the renovation plans.  We encourage you to read the full report and our thanks to all who participated in our survey and attended the policy challenge.
