City Council Announces Awards of Design Contract for New Downtown Parking Garage

 CITY COUNCIL ANNOUNCES AWARD OF DESIGN CONTRACT FOR NEW DOWNTOWN PARKING GARAGE
Public Input Meeting Scheduled for Wednesday, November 13, 2019

10/24/19, Asbury Park, NJ – City Council has announced that plans to construct a new downtown parking garage, with a capacity of approximately 500 spaces, are moving forward with the award of the preliminary design contract to a team led by architectural design firm TimHaahs. The team will include T&M Associates, Clarke Caton Hintz, and 4ward Planning. The structure will be located off of Main Street within the municipal complex that currently houses City Hall, the Police Department and the Transportation Center.

The preliminary design contract, in the amount of $227,000, was awarded to establish the overall design intent of the parking garage and to generate schematic design documents. The effort will also include a Site Feasibility Assessment, to identify the preferred location of the parking garage within the site, as well as a Land Survey, an Environmental Site Assessment, a Soils and Foundation Report, and a Traffic Impact Report.

Preliminary design concepts will be presented at a public meeting on Wednesday, November 13th at 7pm in City Council Chambers, where the public will have the opportunity to provide input.

“Due to the City’s tremendous growth, parking availability is obviously something we’ve been struggling with in Asbury Park,” said Councilperson Eileen Chapman, “It’s an especially important topic for our downtown businesses community as it affects their livelihood and we are pleased to be able to offer a parking solution close to downtown.”

“We’re thrilled to be moving forward with this project,” said Mayor John Moor, “Adding parking supply for our residents, visitors and employees of downtown businesses has been a goal. Increasing the parking supply is one piece of the puzzle in addition to providing alternate forms of transportation.”
