Calling for Parking Reform in Dallas
Katy Slade, principal and founder of mixed-use and multi-family developer Mintwood Real Estate, writes a call to action for the city of Dallas: parking requirement reform.
Slade calls parking reform a quick solution to the need for more affordability in the city, and starts from an assumption that the Dallas City Code requires too many parking spaces.
After penciling out the high cost of parking requirements, Slade lists six potential amendments to the Dallas City Code’s Off-Street Parking Regulations, including allowing for tandem spaces, allowing for more compact spaces, allow bike parking to count for parking reductions everywhere in the city, and more.
