I've been tasked with researching the feasibility of establishing a residential parking permit system for some neighborhoods adjacent to a large university. This is an older neighborhood with little opportunity for off-street parking, so many residents rely on on-street parking. However, the neighborhood's proximity to the university makes it a prime location for students & faculty attempting to dodge the cost of an on-campus parking permit. This results in significant difficulties for the residents of these neighborhoods and a fair amount of political pressure on the recently elected folks to do something about it.
Does anyone have some example programs you could point me toward? I'm especially interested in the following:
Who is responsible for implementing the permit system?
Who is responsible for enforcement of the permit system?
What revenue is generated as a result of the program, whether its permit fees or fines?
What was the cost to implement and what impact was there on staff?
What difficulties, if any, have they had with the program?
What would they change, if anything, about their program?
Any help is appreciated.
