Redmond Requests Community Input on Downtown Parking

March 11, 2019

Redmond, WA – The City of Redmond is seeking information from the community, through an online questionnaire, on your experience with parking in Downtown Redmond. The questionnaire is open until April 1 and available at

The questionnaire is part of the broader efforts related to developing a Parking Management Strategic Plan for Downtown Redmond. In addition to the questionnaire, a parking inventory will be conducted. The volunteer Parking Advisory Committee and City staff will incorporate the results of the questionnaire and parking inventory as part of the Existing Conditions Report – the first phase of the plan – and will share these results with the community in the spring.

Parking management will remain vital to the success of Downtown Redmond as the neighborhood continues to transform. In the coming years, we will have more residents, visitors, commuters and employees Downtown, as well as light rail which arrives in 2024. The Parking Management Strategic Plan will use the Existing Conditions Report to inform potential changes to the way parking is managed in Downtown. The community will be asked to provide feedback on any suggested changes, and implementation, to the Downtown parking program.  

The Parking Advisory Committee is made up of volunteers representing a broad cross-section of the community including residents, business and property owners, employees, commuters, and frequent visitors to Downtown. Committee members engage with staff, consultants, and the community to help shape recommendations for parking management policies and strategies for Downtown Redmond.
