Lunchtime Forum

This program has been converted into a Digital Discourse at SPUR, our new series of online events. To stay updated about the program and receive a link to join the discussion, please register below.

Over the past several years, multiple cities around the Bay Area have decided to eliminate parking minimums for new development projects, both in specific project areas and, in one case, citywide. What have these cities learned in the process and what are the resulting impacts they're experiencing? Come join our panelists for a conversation about the impacts, both positive and negative, that occur when parking minimums are removed.
