How Parking fits with Transportation: Path to Greater Mobility in Nashville
The City of Nashville is growing and attracting more investment than ever and is amid an important period of transportation and infrastructure evolution. In 2021, to meet the mobility needs of this growth, Nashville established a Department of Transportation responsible for delivering their Metro Transportation Plan. This plan prioritizes neighborhood transportation improvements and major infrastructure projects, along with continuing to build on their parking program. As they move forward with developing curb management policies, how will these improvements move the needle on the City's transportation initiatives? Diana Alarcon, CAPP, will share the challenges and lessons learned as they have moved forward in this process.
