This is Not 1975′: Here’s Why LA And Other Cities Are Ditching Parking

By Joseph Pimentel | Bisnow Los Angeles

Next year is going to be a big year for the city of Los Angeles.

The city’s planning commission recently unveiled a draft of the Downtown Community Plan, which gets rid of parking requirements for future multifamily developments, rezones several areas within Downtown Los Angeles and creates more transportation mobility and connectivity.

The planning department for the past month has hosted workshops for the community to review the plan. Next year, the department will hold a few more, helping it to retool the plan before it heads to city officials.

“The plan will strive to support and sustain the ongoing revitalization of downtown, while thoughtfully accommodating this projected future growth,” according to the report.
