Atlanta, GA works to rid off-street parking spaces for new development (War on Cars Watch)

Atlanta joins other cities in reducing its minimum parking requirements. “A proposal to help solve San Diego’s housing crisis by wiping out parking requirements for new condominium and apartment complexes in neighborhoods near mass transit took a key step forward on Wednesday,” reported the San Diego Union-Tribune on February 6. The City of Buffalo, New York, eliminated minimum parking requirements throughout the city in 2017 by inserting a single line into the code: “There are no provisions that establish a minimum number of off-street parking parking spaces for development.” Meanwhile, the international president of the Institute for Transportation Engineers last week recommended that cities get rid of regulations requiring off-street parking.
