Salem Downtown Parking

Barney & Worth, in partnership with Rick Williams Consulting, completed the development of a comprehensive parking management plan for two areas of Salem’s downtown.  Plans were made for the “core retail zone” and the State Capitol Mall.  The study was based on an extensive utilization/capacity and turnover study of nearly 10,000 on- and off-street parking stalls. The work involved extensive public outreach, meetings with leadership groups, and lengthy work sessions with City Council and City staff.  The full plan was unanimously adopted by the Salem City Council.

“Barney & Worth and Rick Williams Consulting prepared a comprehensive project plan and executed the plan on time and within budget.  The process and materials were, at all times, professional and of a high standard.  Their work provided the data that defined the problem, and the public involvement helped share the guiding principles and strategies.”
