DC never "bargains" in these type changes. It's always give-aways to developers (and liquor establishments in ABRA rule changes).

There are many smart growth ideas that could be bargained for in such a financial windfall to developers as doing away with parking minimums. Doing away with those minimums is a fine idea (IF new cars from them are excluded from RPP) but there's a laundry list of more minor desirable public benefits some of which could be bargained for.

In DC it seems the "bargain" is always for increased $ to politicians from those given the windfall.
