Created by Smart Growth Network
In this webinar, Cal Poly Pomona professor Richard Willson identifies problems created by the parking requirement status quo and its profound and longstanding impacts on cities and suburbs.
Willson argues that reforming minimum parking requirements is one of the most effective ways to support smart growth and outlines a step-by-step process for carrying out these reforms.
Planners will learn how to provide an analytic and policy basis for parking requirement reform, see examples of supportive parking management tools for smart growth, and understand strategies for moving reform forward.

This report argues that parking costs increase as a percentage of rent for lower priced housing. As low-income households tend to own fewer vehicles, minimum parking requirements are therefore regressive and unfair. Learn about diverse parking management strategies that can increase affordability, economic efficiency and equity.
