May 7, 2018: The Post Falls City Center Parking Plan conceptual design has passed the 50% point. The team has quantified parking availability today and demand in the future.  Also, the City has approved a back-in angle parking pilot project for completion this summer.
Now the team will create a cohesive strategy for parking and walking in downtown Post Falls. There will be one more public meeting before plan completion.

Feb. 22, 18:The Post Falls City Center Parking Planning effort is in full-swing. The planning team is developing concept designs and working to understand future parking demand. Lots of information is being developed to help us understand what our City Center might look like in 10, 20, or 30 years.  The next public meeting will be held on Thursday, April 12th from 5:30 to 7pm. Like our first meeting, engineers and planners will deliver a presentation followed by an open house. We encourage you attend and help shape our future! One topic of discussion is should we consider back-in angle parking? See this video for details, National City’s Reverse Angle Parking.

Jan. 19, 18: Post Falls is moving forward with planning efforts on the City Center Parking Study. The first public meeting was well attended and stimulated a great discussion. Over the next two months the planning team will dive into more details to prepare for our 2nd public meeting, anticipated to be in mid-March. Stay tuned!

The City of Post Falls is in very beginning stages of a parking study of our downtown area. The in-depth study is intended to identify how much parking is needed in our downtown today and in the future. Specifically, the planning process will answer the following important questions:

Street Parking

  • What is defined as Downtown Post Falls?
  • How much parking is currently available in the downtown area?
  • How much and where should on-street parking be located?
  • How should parking interact with landscape buffers, sidewalk areas, stormwater, and lighting?
  • Where are good locations for a public parking lot within the downtown area?

When considering parking in the downtown area, many factors must be considered. Each “piece of the puzzle” is very important to the overall layout, feasibility, and effectiveness of parking.

The Study will look at each street in the downtown area to determine the most appropriate configuration.
