People Over Parking: Advancing Walkability through Parking Reform

Webinar by America Walks

How do we re-imagine our landscapes where people are the priority? By highlighting the outdated practice of enforcing parking minimums, a policy dating back to the 1950s! By requiring excessive parking spaces, cities have inadvertently promoted sprawling developments, increased housing costs, and created environments that prioritize cars over people.

Highlighting the need for parking reform, our webinar will feature a distinguished panel including Minnesota State Senator Omar Fateh, U.S. Representative Ilhan Omar (MN-05), and Tony Jordan, President of the Parking Reform Network. Together, we’ll delve into the tangible benefits of eliminating parking minimums, as evidenced by cities like Minneapolis, where the abolition of these mandates has led to a decrease in vehicle miles traveled even as the population has continued to grow.

The webinar will also explore legislative initiatives at both state and federal levels aimed at fostering more livable, affordable, and environmentally sustainable urban areas. Participants will learn about the profound impacts of parking policies on community design and gain insights into successful strategies for advocating parking reform in their locales. Join us April 3rd 2pm E.T and discover how you can be part of the movement towards sustainable and inclusive development.
