Pairing Smart Cities/Automated Vehicles with a US Infrastructure Graded D+: 
How Do We Make It Work?

“Look at all the good things that may happen!”  No thought of costs, sources of revenue, priorities for types of cities, priorities for “smart city” stuff vs. fixing the basic roadways and bridges. The economy better get going at rocket speed if any of these things is going to be affordable.  When you look at all the big cities and the age of their infrastructure and condition of all their systems, it seems to us to be a pipe dream that “smart cities” are going to come to fruition anytime soon. We love technology as much as anyone, and more than most.  But inventing this stuff vs. paying for it is the issue.

The Future Of Parking: How Frictionless Parking Has Transformed The Las Vegas Strip

The Las Vegas strip has been transformed by the introduction of frictionless parking at most of the Strip’s best-known resorts, and the transformation began with the largest parking technology installation ever undertaken by a private company to manage 60,000 spaces. The program revolves around a groundbreaking parking technology suite that combines a state-of-the-art parking access and revenue control system, credential readers that can recognize virtually any type of identification, LPR, and the world’s most advanced parking guidance technology. This $90 million parking technology program provides extraordinary customer service benefits to visitors, making it easier for parkers to access safe and convenient parking while providing access to a host of special benefits and marketing opportunities. It also generates new revenues, which the parent company plans to use to further upgrade parking facilities to make the parking experience even more pleasant. This presentation will provide an overview of the project and a look at how other parking owners can use similar frictionless parking suites to improve both customer service and management of their parking assets.

For small cities, the upfront cost of new equipment can be daunting, but there are innovate tactics to work within a limited budget. This session will challenge you to design your ideal parking system and then strategize how to successfully implement it. We will identify the variables necessary for projecting potential revenues and expenditures and walk through a simple forecasting model to demonstrate how small tweaks to these variables can have a significant impact. We will end the session with some creative ideas on how to finance your new equipment purchase, thus allowing your small city to pursue big ideas.

Overhauling Park City - TDM, Parking & Stakeholder Engagement

After completing a comprehensive parking study in 2016, the City of Park City (Utah) began to implement the recommendations during the 2017 shoulder season.  This session will focus on the lessons learned from the progressive implementation plan to the complete transformation of the TDM and how TDM is/was used as a strategy for launching paid parking.  The Park City Parking Manager and Public Works Director will discuss the importance of the implementation timeline and how to be prepared for anything.  They will address the critical need for technology integration and the considerations for support time required to support  deployment, including the vendor management demands.  And most importantly, they will discuss the matter of community outreach. Stakeholder engagement was extensive and ongoing.  But how much is too much? This PIE session will be presented following the conclusion of the Park City winter season and will provide a thorough and candid City perspective of the complete deployment and implementation process. 

Presented by :  Kenzie Coulson, Park City Parking & Fleet Manager, Park City, Utah, Blake Fonnesbeck, Transit & Public Works Director for Park City, Utah
