Earlier this month, the Longmont Downtown Development Authority (LDDA) contracted with Kimley-Horn and Associates (Kimley-Horn) to provide an update of the Downtown Longmont Parking and Access Study. The update is intended to assess how parking patterns have changed since the initial study conducted by Kimley-Horn in 2016, as well as measure the impacts of parking regulation changes implemented in 2017. 

Representatives will be in the field on Saturday, April 27 and Thursday, May 2 taking manual automobile counts in the Downtown area.
In September 2017, the City of Longmont implemented changes to the time limited parking restrictions on several streets throughout the core of Downtown. The City took this action based on recommendations in the 2016 Downtown Longmont Parking and Access Study. The goal of the time restriction change was to encourage balanced use of the parking system with increased turnover and utilization of Downtown Longmont’s most sought-after parking resources. 

In order to assess current spillover into residential areas the 2019 update will include Terry and Emery Streets from Third Avenue to Longs Peak Avenue.  

Results of the update will provide ongoing context and support of future access and mobility related decisions for Downtown Longmont.
