A 2008 parking study found that downtown Charlottesville has about 6,000 parking spaces. 5,000 are off-street and 1,000 are on-street. Council opted not to create a new system of zones in February 2009. [2]

In 2014, the Downtown Business Association of Charlottesville asked City Council to consider charging for on-street parking. Mayor Satyendra Huja called for a parking management study to be created within sixty days. [3]
