The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) engaged RK&K in June 2020 to conduct a parking study within the Takoma/Langley Crossroads community of Prince George’s County. The objective of the study was to analyze existing parking conditions of certain commercial and residential areas and to develop an action plan to address parking supply deficiencies. The consultant team collected data from existing plans and studies, field reconnaissance, and residential and commercial surveys to develop an action plan. Recognizing forthcoming changes to parking regulations through the enactment of the proposed Zoning Code, as well as potential changes in parking demand following the completion of the Purple Line, the action plan was designed to be flexible and explores two approaches—accommodating parking demand and constraining parking demand—as potential paths forward.
The study is now complete. Please follow the link to view and download the report.
In June 2020, the Community Planning Division commenced a new parking study for Takoma Langley Crossroad area to assess the current demand and supply of residential and commercial parking at various peak times, reflecting the diversity of users and times that parking demand may be highest. The goal of this study is to identify strategies that can mitigate the parking issue in the study area. The project will examine legislation, the impact of zoning, enforcement, policies like Residential Parking Permits, and public-private partnerships among others as potential solutions.
