Parking policy guru Jeff Tumlin will outline sixteen ways to tailor parking policies to meet parking demand while reducing some of the negative effects of current policies. D.C. Department of Transportation’s Associate Director Sam Zimbabwe will present the city’s latest thinking on how to take the lessons learned from around the country to craft parking policies that support community goals. Join us to learn about best practices and what D.C. government is planning to do to get parking right.

Over the past 19 years, he has led station area, downtown, citywide, and campus plans, in 20 U.S. states and five other countries. His major development projects have succeeded in reducing their traffic and CO2 emissions by as much as 40%, and accommodated many millions of square feet of growth with no net increase in motor vehicle traffic. Jeff is the author of Sustainable Transportation Planning, which the Berkeley Planning Journal calls “a compact, engaging, and approachable text.”
