Williamsburg, Va. – Officials from the City of Williamsburg need your help gathering information on the parking needs in the downtown area.

The City of Williamsburg is asking residents, visitors, employees and guests to participate in an online survey. The survey can be found on the City’s website or at and will be available through March 31.

“The online survey is very easy and takes less than 5 minutes,” says Planning Director, Reed Nester. “We urge everyone who lives, works or visits Downtown Williamsburg to complete the survey so that the City can provide the best service possible.”

The survey is part of a downtown parking study approved by the Williamsburg City Council. The study will analyze opportunities and needs for parking to help create a 10 year plan. The plan will aim to meet the needs of visitors, downtown businesses and employees, City residents, the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation and the College of William and Mary.

City leaders say the City and the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation may need to make adjustments in their existing parking policies and practices to accommodate the current and future parking demand.

The City’s Planning Department is sending out survey notifications to William and Mary students, faculty and staff, downtown churches and businesses, Colonial Williamsburg Foundation administration, the Neighborhood Council of Williamsburg, the Greater Williamsburg Chamber and Tourism Alliance and various other groups and stakeholders.
