Apartments and Parking (9:10 a.m.)
Presenters: Matt Wickstrom and Bill Cunningham, BPS
Description: Presentation and discussion on the topic of parking requirements for multifamily development, using BPS parking study material and public comment from a Planning and Sustainability Commission (PSC) forum held November 13th as a starting point for PEG discussion. Regulations that do not require development to include on-site parking, intended to facilitate transit-oriented development, have generated community concerns about the impacts of this development on the availability of on-street parking and other issues. BPS is seeking PEG input on a policy and implementation framework for this topic. Note that future meetings will focus on related issues concerning design, scale and transitions pertaining to higher-density development.
Equity Issues: Impacts of parking requirements on housing options and affordability, lack of parking options close to homes for elders and people with disabilities.
