City administrators have announced upcoming public presentations of a citywide parking study and an online survey, open for the public.

The Bethlehem Parking Authority invites residents to attend a presentation Oct. 24 at noon at Northampton Community College’s Fowler Campus classroom 623, and 6 p.m. that evening in city call. DESMAN Parking Consultants will provide an update on the status of the study, initial findings from their data collection and outreach and timeline for completion of this engagement.

The city of Bethlehem and the Bethlehem Parking Authority retained DESMAN to perform a comprehensive review and evaluation of public parking in the city, and are requesting resident input.

“The authority will be incorporating your thoughts and comments into the analyses, which will assist them in making informed future decisions on managing and operating public parking in the city of Bethlehem,” said Mayor Bob Donchez.

Residents and visitors are encouraged to log on to https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/bethlehemparking to participate.
