TRANSFORM Regional Meeting: Parking Strategies for Sustainable Communities

2:28 PM PDT on September 20, 2009

"For too long, outdated parking codes, traffic policies, zoning, and misconceptions have held back the kind of development that fights climate change by making communities more walkable, creating more public transportation, and rewarding those who drive less.  Instead, we see overly-paved places where you have to get in a car to pick up even a carton of milk.

Thankfully, there are a range of parking strategies that can address these challenges and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Jeffrey Tumlin of Nelson/Nygaard, will provide an overview of the role parking plays in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Then, Jay Primus from the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (MTA) will present the innovative SFparkprogram that is piloting various parking strategies in San Francisco."
