The aim of the green parking project is to resolve the parking problem in the residential areas by preventing the deterioration of residential conditions from illegally parked vehicles in the street. The project is based on the residents' participation and cooperation in creating private parking spaces and green space by breaking down the property walls. However, the performance rate in the provincial areas is low. The purpose of this study is to investigate the positive expectations and aspects of concern about the green parking project. The objects of the study were 129 residents in Ulsan who had no previous experience of the project. For analysis, the frequency and means were calculated, and factor analysis and analysis of variance were performed. The results showed, first, that the residents tend to prefer the open wall type. So it will be necessary to improve awareness of the green parking project by mentioning the many environmental and social merits of removing the walls. Second, the subjects are concerned about residential safety ; they have especially high anxiety about privacy and home security. So it will also be necessary to take security measures such as CCTVs in the street and providing a pedestrian-friendly environment. Third, people expect environmental changes, but they feel the burden of maintenance costs of the parking space and open yard. They also worry about noise and dust. However, according to previous research, people participating in the green parking project did not experience such problems, so the local government needs to examine ways to prevent citizens' negative prejudices against the green parking project.
