PURPOSE OF THE STUDY
Over the past decade, the City of Redlands downtown has continued to grow and thrive, with the surrounding core around State Street considered one of Redlands’ greatest assets. Promoting in-fill and mixed-use development in downtown, with the goal of enhancing a pedestrian-friendly, walkable urban core is a central goal of the 2035 General Plan and Transit Villages Specific Plan.
The purpose of this study is to inventory and assess the availability of public parking in the downtown and to provide targeted recommendations to help address real and perceived parking concerns.
