The City of Eureka is seeking public feedback in the development of a new “parking plan” in order to relieve some of the curbside congestion around downtown.

To achieve this goal, the City has published a public survey to learn more about people’s experiences parking downtown.

“This plan will analyze the existing parking demand and supply and provide implementable strategies that balance the parking utilization for all users, including residents, business employers and visitors,” the City of Eureka stated in an announcement regarding the parking study.
