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...
