The Bozeman Parking Commission is undertaking a comprehensive parking study of the downtown business district. The study will address a number of critical aspects including: downtown parking policies, future downtown parking needs and opportunities, and future parking cost projections.

“We conducted parking studies in 2010, 2012 and 2014 that exclusively analyzed how downtown’s existing parking inventory was being used,” said Chris Naumann, executive director of the Downtown Bozeman Partnership and Parking Commission member.

A draft of the plan is expected to be completed in early March 2016 with the final plan presented to the Parking Commission in April 2016.

The following meetings will provide opportunities for you to learn more about the Comprehensive Downtown Parking Plan and provide input about parking issues.
