The Congress for the New Urbanism reports that the number of North American cities ending minimum parking mandates, citywide, is showing "a dramatic acceleration since 2020 – higher even in the first quarter of 2023 than in all of 2022".
In a guest lecture at Stanford today, Siegman & Associates founder Patrick Siegman discussed the parking reform movement sweeping America, how reforming parking policies can help cities prosper, the great earthquake and fire of 1906, why Silicon Valley’s transit systems are some of the least cost-effective (and how to improve them), and the illegal origins of some leading Silicon Valley firms.
Does your town have misguided parking policies? Would you like to know how to reform them, in ways that achieve lasting community support?
In a webinar sponsored by the Oregon Department of Land Conservation & Development, Siegman & Associates founder Patrick Siegman and Professor Richard W. Willson share insights from their decades of experience as practitioners and teachers.
