Coalition Letter: Support for Eliminating Parking Minimums in TPAs

Circulate and its coalition partners sent a letter in support of Mayor Gloria’s Parking Policy Reform proposal for non-residential uses. This proposal would allow businesses that are located near transit or in neighborhood commercial zones to right-size their parking footprint according to their needs by eliminating parking requirements for most uses in these areas. Current parking minimums are a threat to the City’s goals from its Climate Action Plan. Forcing businesses to build parking creates large stretches of asphalt that are hostile to pedestrians, cyclists, and transit users. If the City is to achieve its goal of having large shares of commuters in TPAs bike, walk, or use transit by 2035, it cannot require businesses to cater to drivers.
