Parking Structures

Posted By Will Pinkerton:

June 2008

One fix for the parking problem is to create a parking structure in sub-districts 6c, 2, 6b, 5, and 7. One for each that is owned by the City. It could be funded by bonds and paid back by the TIF. THis worked really well in Evanston IL. (and LA, Boston, and all over Europe).

We should also get away from the setback and proximity slope language and implement a form based code. You are creating a nightmare if you try to do this with a Euclidian Code (its what the City has now as a development code). Look at the FW Ave PD, its a mess, nobody can actually figureout what its saying.

We should also look at narrowing or eliminating certain streets over time. There are certain streets that the City added “in the anme of traffic flow ease” that really screwed up the street grid and made some street blocks very unlivable.
