SOME STUFF FROM THIS WEEK YOU MIGHT HAVE MISSED.
How can we make better use of a parking space? This little dog knows.
Towns across the country are transforming unused parking into more productive developments that offer true benefits to a community, not just temporary car storage.
Plus 5 tips for repealing parking minimums in your community.
The right amount of parking is well-utilized and valuable. But too much is detrimental.
Developer Monte Anderson discusses how parking minimums exclude small-scale developers and how to approach parking needs in an auto-centric area.
We don’t need a parking lot as badly as we need our city to become financially strong and healthy.

Municipalities for whom property taxes are lifeblood should treat parking for what it is: dead weight.
While your fellow Americans are busy fighting each other for 50% off toys and discounted televisions at the stores in your town, you have a job: Snap some photos of the parking lots surrounding these stores.
If we took the entire Strong Towns Strength Test and boiled it down to one indicator, it would be parking minimums. If you can't figure out how to get rid of them, your town isn't strong.
