The space devoted to parking in urban and suburban areas is highly contested, with good reason: in the 300 square feet required for a parking space, you could hold 10 bicycles or even a studio apartment. The new book, Parking Management for Smart Growth, explores how we can actively manage parking as a resource, avoid overbuilding and make the most of it in our cities. Co-presented by Island Press.
