Parking Requirements - Input Opportunities

City Planning staff has been working for some time on text amendments for the zoning code, dealing with off-street parking requirements. They've done extensive research into best practices in other cities and come up with a general direction for the revision. It calls for more flexible and context-sensitive minimum parking requirements, more widespread use of bicycle parking requirements, and the first-ever set of limits on the amount of automobile parking that can be provided. (It's important to note that the ongoing University District study will also potentially create unique parking rules for the U District neighborhoods, which would trump this citywide change.)

Planning staff have scheduled opportunities for community input:

Focus group with business associations, Wednesday, October 1, 10–11am, Northeast Library meeting room, 2200 Central Ave NE.

Neighborhood-focused open house, Thursday, October 16, 6:30–8:30pm, Martin Luther King Recreation Center multi-purpose room, 4055 Nicollet Ave.
