Parking reform is gaining momentum around the world as a key lever to reclaim valuable street space for people, reduce demand for driving, and yield benefits like better air quality, less noise, and fewer greenhouse gas emissions. Cities (and higher-level jurisdictions like state and national governments) are realizing that minimum parking requirements are costly and that removing these mandates is a concerted first step towards the more efficient, equitable use of valuable urban space.
In this webinar, presenters will share their experiences pursuing parking reform, including lessons and challenges with removing parking minimums and enacting complementary policies to ensure the cost and supply of parking match actual demand. The webinar will also launch a new ITDP report, Breaking the Code: Off-Street Parking Reform Lessons Learned, which provides recommendations for governments to reform off-street parking based on experiences captured in seven case studies.
This event will feature live interpretations in Portuguese.
