  • The purpose of the study is to evaluate downtown parking operations, including parking supply and demand, and to recommend changes to parking regulations, policies, and management strategies – that could include expanded paid parking strategies – for the purpose of improving overall downtown parking conditions.

    The City has contracted with John Burke, a parking and transit consultant, to conduct the study. Mr. Burke is a registered professional engineer (PE) in the State of Maine, and Certified Administrator of Public Parking (CAPP) through the International Parking & Mobility Institute (IPMI). He has served as a Parking & Transportation Director for multiple cities and has prepared parking management plans for several coastal communities in New England including Bar Harbor & Camden, Maine, Newburyport & Plymouth, MA, Portsmouth, NH, and others.

    On February 15, 2023, Mr. Burke offered this presentation at a public parking forum, a recording of which is available for viewing here.

    If you have questions, comments or suggestions, please share them with Rhett Lamb, City Planner at or 594-0398.
