This marina parking study establishes a rationale for determining parking demand at marinas on the north shore of Long Island Sound in Connecticut and New York. The study was performed initially during the peak demand holiday of July 4th, 1986, and was updated in 1990. The Marinas surveyed included rental, and sold marinas, as well as, public and private facilities in Connecticut and New York. The issue of parking demand has been an unquantified statistic for use in the marina industry. Although some ratios are available in zoning requirements and through professional organizations, there appears to be no universally accepted ratio of the number of parking spaces required for a marina. Although, regional differences for parking demand may exist, this study attempts to quantify parking demand in the northeastern region for recreational boating on salt water.
