Planning for the taste of Oak Brook

The Village of Oak Brook hosts the “Taste of Oak Brook” annually
during the fourth of July weekend. The event features fireworks, live
entertainment and food from local vendors. Since the event draws in a
large number of people, the Village wanted to make sure that there was
adequate parking so they enlisted the help of GIS. In GIS, parking areas
were designated using aerial photography and existing parking lot
information. Parking spaces were drawn for field parking based on the
village parking regulations and the number of spaces in these areas was
determined. Parking spaces were also determined for paved parking lots.

The Village used this information to determine the total number of
parking spaces for the event. This included standard and disabled
persons parking. By establishing set parking spaces in field areas the
village can now accommodate more vehicles and have more people attend
the event.
