The City of Trenton is currently developing a Downtown Parking Management Plan. In that effort, the City should prioritize parking management that reduces the amount of land dedicated to parking. Moreover, it should investigate whether revenues generated from improved management should be focused on supporting redevelopment that converts parking into more active uses. Finally, the City must work with the State of New Jersey to reduce the amount of space downtown dedicated to parking. To maximize success, efforts to reduce parking must be coordinated with the Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Program, which aims to reduce the number of car trips and miles driven to increase the efficiency of the transportation system. This initiative is closely linked to the Reclaim and Redevelop the Waterfront Initiative, a larger effort to revitalize the waterfront.
