In streets.mn, a nonprofit group that writes about transportation and land use issues in Minnesota, the writers offered eight ways to improve the urban landscape through small, incremental changes. As to be expected, they included two ideas on how parking is an important factor in reshaping urban areas: 1) Eliminate parking minimums. They argue: “There is no bigger detriment to urban centers than parking. It adds costs to private development and drives up rents. Car storage is a terribly inefficient w...
