Testimony to DC Zoning Commission on Zoning Update (ZC 08-06A Subtitle C – Parking & IZ FNL)

We are here to express support for the proposed reductions and removal of parking minimums in Subtitle C.  The current proposal is a compromise that has been considered and revised repeatedly since 2008 due to extensive public input. While we disagree that parking minimums serve a compelling public purpose and believe that they can be harmful, however, we support the compromise proposed in Subtitle C as a greatly improved policy over the status quo.
