The Town of Jackson (TOJ) is seeking proposals from qualified firms interested in providing professional management of the Town’s downtown parking facilities on a management fee basis. The intent is for a summer-only management program with the possibility of a seasonal winter management program if warranted.
The goal is to evaluate the benefits of engaging an experienced parking management firm to develop to potentially implement an on-street paid parking program in the downtown area (on a seasonal basis), as well as to develop plans to manage Jackson’s off-street parking assets (surface parking lots and structure) and the parking enforcement program. The Town is also interested in reviewing plans for a residential parking permit program to manage overflow parking impacts, if any, into residential neighborhoods surrounding the paid parking district following the implementation of paid parking.
Note: The decision to move forward with a parking management program will be dependent on whether Town Council votes to approve authorization of the proposed paid parking program.
The Request for Proposal for potential Downtown paid parking program can be found by CLICKING HERE or going to the following website: http://townofjackson.com/DocumentCenter/View/5125/TOJ-Parking-Management--RFP_2021-Final-09-07-2021
The submission deadline is October 12, 2021.
The Town would like the submitting firms to review the recommendations developed by Kimley-Horn and Associates in the 2019 Town of Jackson Downtown Parking and Mobility Management Plan (DPMMP) and develop a recommended and prioritized approach that will prepare the Town to launch a new Seasonal Paid Parking program by June 1, 2023 in conjunction with other recommended parking management strategies outline in the Kimley-Horn report.
This effort should be guided by the goals of the DPMMP and must be done with careful attention to the Town’s desire to maintain and further enhance its downtown character while also being a premier destination and mountain community. 1.3 Background: The downtown Jackson business district is served by approximately 1,742 public parking spaces (on and off-street) which are owned, maintained and managed by the Town. Table 1 below shows the type, location, and number of these 1,762 spaces. Of the parking spaces listed below, only 400 of the on-street spaces were identified as the most likely spaces to be transitioned to paid parking as detailed in the 2019 Downtown Parking and Mobility Plan. No off-street spaces were identified for paid parking, but respondents may include off-street spaces to their proposed parking plans as they deem advisable.
