Relaxing or eliminating parking minimums is a good idea, but only if you either (1) make sure residents of new buildings without parking minimums will never be able to get residential parking permits or (2) raise the price of RPPs by a lot (enough to make it easy to find parking in residential neighborhoods). If you don't do either of those things, then you make an already bad parking shortage even worse.

I haven't seen any credible plan for (1). I've seen proposals, but it's not at all clear that they'd work (or that they'd persist for the life of the building). And (2) seems politically very difficult.
