State Assembly Considering No Parking Requirements for New Housing
The Los Feliz Ledger also reports that CD 4 Councilmember Nithya Raman is supporting Assemblywoman Laura Friedman’s Assembly Bill 1401, eliminating minimum parking requirements for developments near public transit or within areas with low vehicle miles traveled. Commenting on the bill, SLT co-founder and co-chair of Silver Lake’s Urban and Preservation Committee Scott Plante notes that parking can substantiality increase project cost and changing parking requirements could be beneficial in denser areas, such as Koreatown, Downtown L.A. and Hollywood.
“Los Angeles' living patterns have not caught up with its transit system,” said Plante. “If AB 1401 passes, it will be a work in progress.”
