Olympia's Parking Strategy

What is the Parking Strategy?

The Downtown Strategy calls for a comprehensive approach to addressing Olympia's parking challenges. This is especially important as more residents and businesses move into downtown over the coming years.

The Parking Strategy will guide our actions as we develop parking policy and management strategies that support community goals for economic development, housing, and transportation.

The Parking Strategy includes a study with data and public feedback to help us understand current parking conditions. It also includes a summary of key strategies to address the parking issues identified during the study.
