Sioux City Downtown Parking Report

The Siouxland Interstate Metropolitan Planning Council (SIMPCO) has completed a study on the City of Sioux City’s public parking spaces. The purpose of the study was to determine how the City’s public parking is being used during the standard meter enforcement hours. Examining the data revealed that there is a large surplus of available parking in downtown Sioux City. The number of public parking spaces exceeds the amount demanded by the public. A surplus of parking can be a problem due to the opportunity costs as well as the costs of installing, maintaining, and enforcing more meters than necessary. SIMPCO hopes that this information will be useful for downtown planning decisions and will help develop the downtown into a vibrant and thriving location for the community. Read SIMPCO’s Sioux City Downtown Parking Report for more details about the study, its findings, and its recommendations. For access to the report, please cick here.

What is a Comprehensive Plan?

Comprehensive Plans are municipal or regional documents that can provide several benefits.  Basic elements of a comprehensive or master plan may include: An inventory of community resources and challenges, a community or regional vision, and goals or strategies meant to achieve the community or regional vision.  Developing a comprehensive plan can be complex and SIMPCO can assist with providing a seamless process with measurable outcomes.  SIMPCO has written dozens of comprehensive plans including the following most recent:  Onawa, Sergeant Bluff, Le Mars, Akron, South Sioux City, and Dakota and Ida Counties.
