In order to address current parking challenges and plan for future growth, the South Orange County Community College District (SOCCCD) needed a comprehensive parking study for its two campuses, Saddleback College and Irvine Valley College, as well as the Advanced Technology and Education Park. Watry Design, Inc. was hired to identify parking issues at each campus, provide recommendations for parking management strategies and create a tool to allow the District to project the amount of parking needed as each campus continues to grow with increases in student enrollment and new facilities. 

When parking data collected identified that current parking inventory at both Saddleback and Irvine Valley Colleges was at or beyond capacity, the Watry Design team that also included Fehr and Peers prepared several solutions designed to improve parking at each campus and calculate projected parking needs to accommodate development for the District's Master Plan and future growth. Each of these solutions were then categorized according to their projected cost and impact.
