CAMDEN, Del.- A parking study for downtown Dover will see its third and final public workshop before recommendations go to the Dover City Council for review.

The downtown Dover parking study began in 2016 with a 10-member group that included stakeholders representing business, residential, municipal and other interests downtown.

The main scope of the study for the 10-block area researched whether there is enough parking in downtown Dover. It also addressed how to locate available parking to visitors, parking fee structures and if more parking areas should be constructed.

The workshop will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 24, 2017 in Meeting Room A of the Dover Public Library.

At the workshop, the Dover/Kent County MPO, the city and consultants will show:

  • Study conclusions — what the study did and did not find.
  • Recommendations for parking areas in downtown Dover based upon study results and comments from previous workshops and from area stakeholders.
  • Maps showing recommended changes, such as signs that point the way to available parking.
  • Maps showing recommended areas for streetscaping and reallocation of permit-only and public parking.
  • A timeline of the remaining steps in the process.
