Update on Burlington Parking Reform

UPDATE: The Burlington City Council approved a new parking ordinance intended to encourage residential development throughout the city by removing parking minimums for new housing developments.  

The new ordinance now sets limits to the maximum number of parking spaces rather than establishing a minimum. According to City estimates, one parking spot can cost developers thousands of dollars to build and can lead to a corresponding monthly rental increase up to as much as 30%.
