A survey meant to assess midtown and downtown parking went live on the city of Sacramento’s website Friday morning.
The survey asks about residential parking in the Central City area between the Sacramento River (western boundary), the American River (northern boundary), Alhambra Boulevard (eastern boundary) and Broadway (southern boundary). Residents in that area received a postcard with the access code needed to take the survey, said Linda Tucker, city spokeswoman.
The 11-item survey includes questions about where people regularly leave their cars, what they think of temporary online residential parking permits available on the city website and how long they’ve lived in Sacramento.
Councilman Steve Hansen requested the survey be conducted, Tucker said.
