Danville studies downtown parking

Most people surveyed are OK with two-hour limit

by Geoff Gillette

Last fall Danville officials conducted a survey of downtown merchants and patrons to get a sense of how much parking was used compared to what may be needed. The survey was folded into a traffic study paid for by the town.

Danville Transportation Engineer Associate Andy Dillard said the survey showed that of the 2,929 spaces in downtown Danville, 54 percent were private off-street parking; 28 percent were municipal parking lots; and 18 percent was on-street parking.

"The whole idea," Dillard said, "was to get a better understanding of the parking supply and inventory in our downtown ... where they park, where they go."
