"Well-served by public transit" is defined as less than one-half mile from a Metro station or a quarter-mile from major bus lines (e.g., the 16th and 14th Street lines).
This minimum is a change from an earlier proposal, which would have eliminated parking minimums altogether in areas well-served by public transit.
"One space for six units is below where the market is producing parking," Cort said.
The proposed change would also eliminate downtown parking minimums entirely, and require buildings with 50 parking spaces or more to have at least one space for car-sharing services.
See an information sheet about the proposed new parking minimums from the Coalition for Smarter Growth here.
