INTEGRATION OF PARKING AND CIRCULATION ANALYSIS FOR EVALUATION OF LAND USE ALTERNATIVES

Parking and circulation analyses often are not integrated together during the preparation of specific plans, environmental documents or project-specific studies. Parking analysis typically involves forecasting parking requirements using the City code rates for the land use plan under consideration, while circulation studies often ignore the implications of joint use parking. For the Midtown District area of the City of Santa Ana, California, a more realistic parking analysis was conducted which included parking surveys, application of shared and joint parking concepts, and consideration of the impact on parking of various Transportation Control Measures/Transportation Demand Management (TCM/TDM) measures which are part of the City's air quality requirements. The proposed land use plans resulted in an estimated future parking demand, which in turn resulted in proposed new consolidated parking facilities.
