Webinar: The Truth Behind Common Parking Myths

While parking structures are an extremely common building type, there are a great deal of misconceptions about them. Are parking structures as unsafe as Hollywood leads us to believe? Are they ugly, necessary evils? Is there a single, credible answer to the question, “what is the average cost of a parking stall?”

While we have all been in parking structures that fit the unpleasant Hollywood stereotype, modern parking best practices have come a long way in elevating the parking experience. On Wednesday, November 10, we will tackle parking fact vs. parking fiction in “The Truth Behind Common Parking Myths.” Learn about the structural differences between designing for cars and designing for people. Discover the many layers that factor into the cost of a parking stall. Explore the true size of a parking footprint, learn how that impacts the design process, and much more. Earn 1 CAPP point, too.
