SAN JUAN COUNTY, WA. July 19, 2023 – San Juan County’s Eastsound Planning Review Committee (EPRC) is holding a public brainstorming meeting on Thursday, August 3 to contribute to a future Eastsound Parking Study. The public is encouraged to attend and lend their constructive feedback and ideas to this important discussion.
When: Thursday, August 3, 2023
Where: Lundeen Rm. Orcas Senior Center, 62 Henry Rd, Eastsound, WA 98245
Time: 5-7pm on the EPRC meeting agenda
This meeting will serve as a discussion of Eastsound parking issues and an opportunity to brainstorm both long and short-term solutions. Attendees will be given prompts, broken into discussion groups, and encouraged to think critically about solving ongoing parking issues. San Juan County Councilmember Cindy Wolf will be in attendance to contribute to the discussion.
Questions and talking points include:
- What parking problems do you see in Eastsound? Which affects you the most (as a resident, shopper or business owner)?
- Should there be time limits on public parking? If so, how long?
- What are the kinds of future public parking you would like to see? Where?
Information gathered from this meeting will help guide consultants in the development of an Eastsound Parking Study. Thanks to a $50,000 grant, San Juan County plans to hire a consultant to synthesize past and present data, develop a study, and determine possible solutions.
