Coordinate shared parking strategies with private parking lot owners Some private parking lot owners in downtown have informal agreements that allow the public to use their lots after business hours and on weekends, but no formal agreements are in place and there is no formal signage to inform the public that such private spots are available for use during select times. The Town should work with owners of private lots to form shared parking agreements or easements. Install signage for private lots with shared parking agreements In private lots that allow public parking under certain conditions, install appropriate signage that clearly notifies visitors as to when such private spots are available for public parking.

Investigate the use of the Wake Forest Baptist Church lots for downtown employee parking Rather than downtown employees using public parking spaces that would otherwise be utilized by visitors, work with the Baptist Church to make a certain number of spots available in their lots for use by downtown employees during off-peak times for the church. These lots are only a 2–3 minute walk across the railroad tracks to White Street shops.
