The City of Columbus’ Comprehensive Parking Study began with an effort to understand the confluence of parking issues among employees, customers and visitors that the City has been trying to address for a number of years.

With a vibrant downtown benefitting from progressive infrastructure developments, large employers, important visitor attractions, and unique retail, the City has prominently invested in certain values – economic development, livability, vitality, friendliness, and attractiveness. The City does not want parking to be a barrier to achieving its overall goals. By looking at the parking system comprehensively, the study demonstrated that parking supply alone is not the issue, but rather the perception and management of the parking system.
