Downtown Parking Study

Downtown Knoxville has grown in the last number of years to be a bustling area with numerous residents and visitors each day. The City is working with a consultant to access downtown parking to inform a strategic plan for parking and mobility.

As a part of this process, residents are encouraged to fill out the short downtown parking survey linked below to provide feedback on what is going well, how parking is used now, and what the needs are for getting around in downtown Knoxville.
