More Cities Than Ever Are Eliminating Parking Minimums


The fight to end parking minimums is happening all over the continent, from California to Nova Scotia, from Mexico City (one of 2017’s big wins) to the Yukon. Successful removals of these harmful laws give us hope: there’s more recognition than ever of the harm that requiring excess parking does to our cities’ finances and to their livability. But there’s still a lot of work to be done.

Several years ago, we asked you to help us by sharing information about towns that had removed or lowered their parking minimums. From that crowdsourced data, we created this map. And new additions keep rolling in (congrats to Clearwater, Florida; Richmond, Virginia; and Ketchum, Idaho, among others). Click on each pin to read about what's going on in that particular city with regards to parking minimums:

  • Green pins = parking minimums completely eliminated in at least one area of the city

  • Blue pins = parking minimums lowered or removed for certain uses

  • Orange pins = currently discussing their parking minimum laws

Don't see your city on the map? Fill out this survey and we'll make sure to put it on there. If you have an update on the status of parking minimums in one of these cities, we welcome those submissions as well. A special thank you to everyone who helped us put together this map!
