Synopsis

Today, there are more than three parking spaces for every car in the United States. No one likes searching for a space, but in many areas, there is an oversupply, wasting valuable land, damaging the environment, and deterring development. Richard Willson argues that the problem stems from outdated minimum parking requirements. In this practical guide, he shows practitioners how to assess the parking requirements that make sense for each community, reform zoning codes, and create more vibrant cities. Local planners and policymakers, traffic engineers, developers, and community members are actively seeking this information as they institute principles of Smart Growth. But making effective changes requires more than relying on national averages or copying information from neighbouring communities. Instead, Willson shows how professionals can confidently create requirements based on local parking demand data and land use policy priorities. After putting parking and parking requirements in context, the book offers an accessible tool kit to get started and repair outdated requirements.

It looks in depth at parking requirements for multifamily developments including income-restricted housing, workplaces, and mixed-use, transit-oriented development. Case studies for each type of parking illustrate what works, what doesn't, and how to overcome challenges. Willson also explores the process of codifying regulations and how to work with stakeholders to avoid political conflicts. With "Parking Reforms Made Easy", practitioners will learn, step-by-step, how to improve requirements. The result will be higher density, healthier, more energy-efficient, and liveable communities.
