CAN PRIVATE ENTERPRISE HANDLE THE PARKING PROBLEM SUCCESSFULLY?
THE SUCCESS OF ANY PARKING PLAN DEPENDS UPON CONVENIENCE AND COST. MUNICIPAL PARTICIPATION AND OWNERSHIP ARE DISCUSSED. AN ECONOMIC ANALYSIS WAS CONDUCTED OF PARKING LOTS. IT IS CONCLUDED THAT THE MUNICIPALITY SHOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR SHORT-TIME PARKING ACCOMMODATIONS. THE ZONING SHOULD CONTROL OFF-STREET LOADING AND UNLOADING FACILITIES IN THE CASE OF COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS, AND OFF- STREET VEHICLE STORAGE SPACE IN THE CASE OF DWELLINGS. PRIVATE ENTERPRISE SHOULD TAKE CARE OF FURTHER PARKING NEEDS.
