To Residents, Property and Business Owners of Green Mountain Falls:
For the past several years, Town Trustees and I have been working to address the issue of parking in our Downtown. The Town has heard growing concerns of residents regarding the impact of parking and congestion on residents and businesses. For the past several years, there have been growing concerns about Trail Use, Signage, and Parking in Green Mountain Falls.
To that end, the Town held several public meetings over the course of the last year to conduct a parking needs study discuss implementing a Managed Parking Plan in the Downtown area to increase turnover in parking spaces and to protect parking for residents in residential neighborhoods. This includes paid parking in town center and there is an attached flyer with details about our tailored program.
Following the feedback from several Town Board of Trustees meetings, Community Forums, and the results of a Community Survey, the Town signed a contract with Interstate Parking of Colorado to do a 2-year trial Managed Parking Plan in the Downtown area on the weekends during the summer months. Visitors to our beautiful town will be able to pay for parking at kiosks or by using the Park GMF app. Residents and employees will be able to park for free by registering their vehicle license plates.
Attached is a flyer with Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) and a map that describe the details of the Park GMF program. Additional information is also available on the website www.ParkGMF.com and by contacting Park GMF at 719-838-0348 or at ParkGMF@interstateparking.com. Interstate Parking will be available in person from 9AM to 1PM at Town Hall on Saturday, June 12th, 2021 to assist with signups and answer any questions you may have one-on-one.
During the 2-year trial program, the Town will assess the data received from this adaptive plan to see what changes should be made and to determine our next steps. This process will include an opportunity for public input. There is no cost to the Town or town residents for this trial program. Revenues from the parking fees will be split between the Town and Interstate, and the Town intends to reinvest the proceeds into much needed improvements.
The Trustees and I understand that this 2-year trial Managed Parking Plan represents a big change for all of us. We firmly believe that this is an important step that we can take to better manage our existing parking resources and to obtain data as we plan for our parking needs in the future. Thank you to all who participated in the planning process over this last year.
Jane Newberry, Mayor
