M-20 Off-Street Parking Regulations Comprehensive Update

The City shall amend the Off-Street Parking Regulations of the Municipal Code to incorporate smart growth principles and to incentivize walking, biking, and public transit.  The update shall consider the following changes:

  • Creating a single “blended” parking requirement for commercial uses to facilitate future changes of use (i.e. changing a retail store to a restaurant);
  • Providing requirements or incentives for bicycle parking;
  • Allowing on-street parking along the property’s frontage to count towards satisfying a portion of the property’s off-street parking requirements;
  • Setting parking maximums to limit the amount of parking that can be built on a site;
  • Creating parking preferences or incentives for residents who rideshare or use low- or zero-emissions vehicles; and
  • Allowing property owners to develop and implement parking demand management plans that consider ways to reduce the need for off-street parking by using shared parking arrangements, valet parking services, paid parking, and other appropriate techniques.
