Are Parking Minimums A Thing of The Past?


Is your city considering reducing or eliminating minimum parking requirements? Have developers asked for the parking reductions you need to ensure demand is accommodated? While mobility trends are causing cities to rethink the need for parking minimums, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. You’ll leave this session with a toolbox of planning, policy, and technology strategies for right-sizing parking to meet the distinctive needs of your community.


  • Learn to lead a discussion with stakeholders on how mobility trends and consumer preferences may reduce the need for minimum parking requirements, tradeoffs to consider, and alternatives to providing access.
  • Identify the data and decision points to consider before reducing or eliminating parking minimums citywide, in districts, or for specific projects.
  • Create the planning, policy, and technology strategies to ensure that parking requirements are right-sized for their city, ensure the parking supply will be able to satisfy demand and improve access.
