Committee Formed To Study Parking
The New Castle City Planning Commission has formed a sub-committee to conduct a parking study. Three members of the Planning Commission will be working with Heather Dunigan, a professional planner from WILMAPCO (the Wilmington Area Planning Council), and other citizens may also be involved.
The committee will begin its work by reviewing a parking plan prepared 10 years ago for the City, and also look at examples of more recent parking plans prepared for other communities, such as Chesapeake City, MD.
A more in-depth plan for New Castle could include looking at an inventory of current parking, the impact and possible locations for additional parking, policy recommendations and the installation of parking meters. Along with the various options to be explored, the committee will be looking at associated costs.
The anticipated time frame for the committee to conduct and complete its work is nine months to one year. All committee meetings will be open to the public and will be publicized in accordance with the State Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA).
