Parking-Improvement-Plan Map - All Streets

Beginning April 26, a contractor for the City of Moab will paint new parking stalls on 100 East between 100 North and Center Street as a demonstration of the new dispersed parking approach planned for several downtown streets. The dispersed parking project is being done in place of the previously proposed downtown parking structure. Parking on this block will be unavailable for several days while crews are painting.  

 Construction is expected to be implemented on multiple blocks downtown in late fall or early winter. 

The project will update six locations in the downtown area to include angle parking in the center of the road. Three other blocks will be restriped to increase the overall supply of parking in the downtown area.Parking-Improvement-Plan Map - All Streets

 “The plan spreads on-street parking across the downtown area to better address parking availability, the number of oversized vehicles and trailers we see and improve safety for all road users including bicycles and pedestrians,” said Moab City Engineer Chuck Williams.

 On May 4, the project team will host a meeting at City Hall with property and business owners located on the affected blocks. At this meeting, the team will ask those property and business oDispersed Parking Demonstration Area 4-25-2022wners for input into their access needs and business operations. 

 In June, the team will host an on-site open house for community members to share their thoughts. The date of the June open house will be announced in the coming weeks. 

 The project design will include the opportunity for some aesthetic improvements in several locations. The community will be invited to weigh in on those aesthetic options at the June open house or provide input online via a short survey.
