  1. Balancing off-street and on-street parking demand to reduce congestion

  2. To implement new parking policies focused on improving community satisfaction through affordable parking options

  3. Automate painful manual processes in parking management and improving operations

  4. Curbing operational expenses and increasing revenue to fund various community programs

  5. Track the impact of COVID-19 and adjust the budget and operations accordingly
