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

While current downtown parking capacity is generally adequate, 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.
