The Washington Post: "The White House takes on off-street parking"

Link to web site

"In a policy paper released Monday, the White House has taken a side, coming down against rules across the nation that require developers to build parking spots.

" 'We want new development to replace vacant lots and rundown zombie properties, we want our children to be able to afford their first home, we want hard-working families to be able to take the next job on their ladder of opportunity, and we want our community to be part of the solution in reducing income inequality,' it states.

"... 'Particularly in cities where alternatives to driving exist, on-site parking is a build-it-and-they-will-come phenomenon,' city planner Jeff Speck later wrote. 'If a building has parking spaces, people show up with cars. If it doesn't, people show up without them'."
