Reforming minimum parking requirements is one of the most effective ways to support Smart Growth. Yet many planners lack the tools to develop recommendations for parking reform. The course explains some of the problems with status quo parking requirements and helps the student understand resistance to reform. The core of the course explains a 12-step process for generating recommendations to either deregulate parking or reform minimum requirements. Each analytic and policy step is explained and illustrated. Then a range of parking requirement approaches is presented, along with accompanying elements of parking regulations. The course concludes with an explanation of parking management tools that should accompany requirement reform and a discussion of strategies for addressing political and stakeholder issues.
