Transportation and Parking Plan

Transportation and Parking Plan Logo

Together with the community, the City is creating a strategic plan to guide citywide transportation and parking policy and investments. The Transportation and Parking Master Plan (TPMP) will further define the City’s transportation vision and  help refine the mobility recommendations in the city’s comprehensive development plan, Imagine Hastings (2009). The TPMP process focuses on creating a community-driven mobility vision that will provide the City with a decision making framework and a coordinated strategy to implement actionable projects to address Hastings’ diverse transportation challenges, including safely and efficiently walking, biking, and driving around the City.


2/5/21 – Parking Plan Charrette Meeting

We thank all those that participated in the invitational meeting.  This meeting was held to discuss parking management and how parking is currently being managed; discuss all issues and concerns and then to hear various options that the consultants will provide as options to mitigate these concerns.  Key take-aways from this discussion is that the downtown stakeholders enjoy the City of Hasting flexibility with regard to the enforcement of parking as it is conducted currently; there was some discussion on designated parking in parking lots (particularly the one north of City Hall); as well as more relaxed time limits in on street parking areas and fees for long-term parking in off street parking lots or perhaps relocation of this practice all together.  This spring there will also be a parking audit done by the consultants.  We were excited to start discussing parking and hear all the issues, concerns and kudos that were presented at that meeting.  Click on the attachment to review the meeting notes and slides that were presented.
