Reforming Parking in Downtown Oakland:A free SPUR event

Oakland has been hard at work updating and improving parking policies. The city recently completed a Downtown Oakland Parking Study, as well as an update of citywide parking requirements in the zoning code. Join us for an update on the implementation of parking reforms and how they relate to the city’s broader transportation and planning priorities.

(not a cohousing-specific event, but very much of interest to anyone looking to develop new cohousing neighborhoods, as parking is one of the largest costs of new development and city/county requirements impose many limitations on what is possible for us to create. It's also great to meet others involved in carrying out and changing area zoning codes.)
