SRF Consulting Group, Inc. is conducting a multi-phased parking study of downtown Wayzata. The results of the study will provide a new baseline of parking needs in this area. In 2019, SRF conducted parking counts and studied the area around the new Mill Street Parking Ramp.
In 2021, parking counts were conducted in the larger downtown area from Ferndale Avenue to Superior Blvd and up the hillside nearly to Wayzata Blvd.
City staff will continue studying additional mechanisms to help fund maintenance and operations of public parking. The City most recently studied the implementation of a Special Services District but that process failed to gain traction from downtown property owners.
SRF also completed parking studies for this area in 2012 and 2015. As redevelopment occurs, parking needs will continue to be analyzed on a regular basis.
