The City of Ashland is conducting a study of parking and circulation issues in downtown, and weíre asking you to help inform our process by completing a survey.
The City of Ashland contracted with the University of Oregonís Community Planning Workshop to analyze a number of issues identified in the 2001 Downtown Plan and 2012 Transportation System Plan. The project includes completing a parking occupancy and inventory study, researching parking management strategies from around the country and discussing potential bike and pedestrian improvements.
As a part of the study, we distributed an initial survey in late January to gauge perceptions of parking in downtown Ashland, including how different user groups accessed and utilized the downtown area. With this second survey, our objective is to collect information from the community related to their opinion and support for various strategies aimed at addressing the parking and circulation issues.
Community members, downtown employees and downtown business owners all play a vital role in visiting and parking downtown, therefore weíre asking for 15 minutes of your time to answer some questions relating to your opinions of these possible strategies. The survey is being distributed through the Chamber of Commerce, the cityís website, and with Ashland's utility bill mailing in May, so please feel free to forward the survey to anyone else you think may be interested.
You can only take the survey once, and it will remain open until Monday, June 30, 2014 at 5:00 PM
. If you have any questions or issues regarding the survey, please contact the University of Oregonís project coordinator, Amanda DíSouza, at firstname.lastname@example.org
