Houston lifts minimum parking requirements in EaDo, Midtown
The City of Houston removed its minimum parking requirements for property owners in east downtown and part of Midtown. Developers in those neighborhoods will now be able to decide how much parking is needed for businesses and residences.
“Opponents of parking minimums say the requirements produce an excessive number of parking lots that eat up space in the urban core, making it harder to traverse cities on foot or by public transit.”
The proposal was opposed by one councilman who believed that removing parking minimums would reduce customers and hurt businesses.
It is especially important to reduce excess parking around transit stations because cities tend to require too much, which stymies development on valuable land.
