Her presentation will be followed by facilitated table discussions that will aim to identify parking issues. The conversations will focus on a variety of parking needs — commuters, residents, employers, employees, downtown, citywide and special needs.

Information gathered at the table discussions will be posted on the land use action team’s web page, https://sustainablecorvallis.org/action-teams/land-use/.

A second meeting will be scheduled for later this year that will feature experts presenting possible strategies to address parking issues.
