Almost a year ago we published our first guide for cities looking to develop loading zone fee policies. It remains one of our most popular resources, and we thought it was high time to update it to include more examples, more best practices, and the latest-greatest we've learned from our Smart Zone deployments in cities across the US.
Charging for loading gives a city a powerful tool to to promote the economic vitality of commercial areas by making it easier for businesses to (1) receive supplies and services, and (2) fulfill customer requests for deliveries, all while improving the experience for people who live in and visit the area. But like many policies, the details matter. This guide provides practical advice and precedents from other cities to help you draft a policy that helps your community meet its objectives.
We hope this updated guide comes in handy for you and your team. Download the full guide here!
