It's only logical that folks get concerned about traffic and parking impacts of large projects near where they live. Now, one way to address that is to require lots of offstreet parking so that the parking impact on surrounding streets is minimal. Alternatively, parking minimums can be reduced, but only if the parking impact of large projects is not then put onto already overcrowed streets. Plus, this is a sure-fire way to ensure that residents of such new projects really do use transit -- walk the way, as well as talk the talk. The way to do this is by restricting such projcts out of RPP. Reducing offstreet parking requirements while shifting more parking demand onto the surrounding streets is guaranteed to energize a large segment of the surrounding communiity.
