Downtown Parking Open House

Tuesday, April 9th from 6-8 PM at the Wort Hotel in the Jackson Room

The Town of Jackson released on March 28, 2019, the Draft Downtown Parking and Mobility Management Plan. This Plan contains draft recommendations from consultant Kimley Horn intended to improve parking availability, reduce traffic congestion, and increase pedestrian and bike mobility in the Town Square and surrounding areas. The goal is to ensure that downtown parking contributes better to the economic vitality of the community in a way that reflects the community’s character. The Plan provides the public and decision-makers important data and recommendations that integrate all forms of travel, leverages new technology, and creates a long-term framework to address the staffing and funding levels necessary to successfully implement various recommendations. In particular, the draft Plan focuses on the highly seasonal needs (i.e., summer peak) of Jackson’s parking congestion that includes high levels of usage by locals, employees, and tourists. The Plan also includes detailed summaries of existing parking conditions and the community outreach process thus far.

“Nearly everyone has a strong opinion about parking in the Town Square area because our downtown is the heart of the community and it’s a place that we all experience together.“  Principal Planner, Paul Anthony.

In addition, the community is invited to listen to a presentation by consultant Kimley Horn on the Plan’s recommendations and to then provide public comment at a public open house from 6 pm – 8pm on Tuesday, April 9, at the Wort Hotel in the Jackson Room. The Town Council will hold a workshop on the draft Plan on Wednesday, April 10, from 10am to noon in the Council Chambers. Public comment will not likely be taken at the Council workshop but there will be future opportunities for public comment at the Planning Commission and Town Council meetings planned for later this spring when the Town begins its process to consider formal adoption of the Downtown Parking and Mobility Management Plan.
