Parking Management Project

Why should Camden change how parking is managed?

Project Overview:

In June of 2021, Camden engaged John Burke, a parking & transportation consultant, to conduct a downtown parking study to assist the Town in its efforts to optimize and better balance the use of its downtown parking supply. 
This study contributes to the implementation of Camden's 2012 Downtown Master Plan, which recommends the development of an integrated parking management strategy for the downtown. 

The Town began a paid parking pilot program in the summer of 2022 that was continued into the summer of 2023 at the public landing.  Information on the program can be found below.
