Kevin Holliday Joins Dixon Resources Unlimited

San Diego, CA: Dixon Resources Unlimited is pleased to welcome Kevin Holliday as a Senior Associate. Kevin is an experienced urban planner with public and private experience who brings firsthand knowledge and program management skills to the DIXON team. Earning his stripes through his work with the high-profile SFpark program, Kevin went on to manage one of the largest vanpool programs in the country.

Throughout his career, Kevin has forged productive working relationships with fellow planners, meter shop technicians, department heads, and external government officials. He has written and edited RFPs and has overseen evaluation processes for multiple procurements, most recently negotiating a $45M procurement for the Metro Vanpool Program Vehicle Supplier bench contract for LA Metro. Kevin has demonstrated his ability to successfully navigate relationships with suppliers and consultants.

At the University of Southern California, Kevin managed a $500,000 research grant from the California Department of Transportation to study and encourage the use of public-private partnerships in the transportation sector. As part of the project, he conducted original research including literature reviews, stakeholder interviews, and detailed comparative analysis of contracts.

Kevin served on an interdisciplinary team to implement SFpark, a radical program to revise San Francisco’s on- and off-street parking policies. The City’s $24M program introduced demand-based, variable pricing for City-managed parking resources. He presented the Program’s goals to internal and external audiences and wrote numerous documents and studies that resulted in improved policies. SFMTA used his work to support the decisions to charge for holiday parking, extend operating hours, and overhaul the City’s disabled placard policy.

Dixon Resources Unlimited is a small, woman-owned consulting firm that focuses on supporting municipal parking needs. We develop customized parking roadmaps to define the current and future parking needs of our clients. Our specific areas of expertise include identifying opportunities for on-street and off-street parking, engaging with stakeholders, developing policy and operating plans, and implementing technology solutions for growing cities. DIXON has a proven track record of assisting cities throughout North America to identify managerial, operational, and technological improvements to their parking programs. Kevin will aid in DIXON’s mission, and we look forward to an exciting future together.

Kevin holds a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Occidental College and a Master of Arts in Urban Planning from the University of California, Los Angeles.
