Parking Authority of Baltimore City


Statement Regarding the Passing of Former Board Chair Peter Auchincloss

(2017) Outgoing Chair Peter Auchincloss, Incoming Chair Pierce Flanigan IV, Executive Director Peter Little

The Parking Authority’s staff and Board of Directors are deeply saddened by the passing of Peter Auchincloss, who served as Chairman of our Board of Directors from May of 2010 through October of 2017.  Peter provided tremendous leadership, guidance, and support to the Parking Authority as Chairman and beyond.  Under his leadership, we achieved unparalleled successes, including major improvements to the Residential Permit Parking program; the metered parking program; the City’s parking garages and lots; and conditions for Parking Authority staff.  Peter’s resolve was essential to the creation of the Parking Planning Division; the Valet Parking Program; and the introduction of car sharing services to Baltimore.

Peter cared deeply about Baltimore, and he knew that by accomplishing our mission we would help make the City a better place for residents, businesses, and visitors.  He sought continuous improvement, always urging us to find better ways to serve our customers.  Peter’s immense energy was contagious, and he was skilled in persuasion, helping us to overcome or maneuver around any obstacle.  We could not have asked for a stronger advocate of our programs, initiatives, and people. 

We did not think of Peter as merely our leader and supporter, he was our friend, and he will be dearly missed.
