For generations, cities across California have required that developers build a certain number of parking spaces for each housing unit they construct. The results have been that many suburban neighborhoods have become dominated by multi-car garages, while higher-density communities are regularly pocked with expansive parking lots and large structures. However, as transportation patterns continue to shift, this regulated emphasis on driving — and the required spaces allocated for parking — has adversely impacted how we interact with the environments around us. Parking requirements significantly drive up home prices, have deleterious effects on our climate and public health and make neighborhoods less enjoyable. Join us for an interactive workshop where we’ll jointly envision a city that puts people, not cars, first and the benefits that such a bold idea can provide.
