WORKSHOP CAR PARKING SPACES

The ADD HOME partner RHOMBERG is involved in the organisation of a workshop to discuss innovative measures for the management of parking spaces. The workshop challenges the use of space for car parking connected to the economic, environmental and social problems that occur from it.

Using the heading “innovative parking space management - an opportunity for economy and environment”, the workshop starts from the fact that in Austria more space is dedicated to car parking than to living. At the same time, streets are overfilled with cars parking and underground parking spaces are insufficiently used. The economics demand a more efficient use of infrastructure, since both, municipalities and companies, are confronted with high costs due to car parking infrastructure. To solve this, the workshop discusses new management structures, ownership models and legal preconditions for car parking spaces. Especially the currently discussed regulation for parking spaces of the Province of Vorarlberg bears good opportunities to mark a change in car parking space policies. The workshop takes place in Bregenz and is hosted by the Federal Ministry of Environment and its programme “klima:aktiv mobil” as well as by the Province of Vorarlberg, the chamber of commerce of Vorarlberg and the Austrian association of cities (Städtebund). The workshop will be held in German. You can DOWNLOAD the invitation information in the ADD HOME E-campus Calendar!
