City Inside/Out: Parking Pains
City Inside/Out: Parking Pains

Seattle is hoping to stimulate economic growth by simplifying regulations and eliminating some minimum parking requirements. An unusual alliance of businesses, labor groups, low-income housing providers, and the environmental community support this change, but some neighborhoods are up in arms over the prospect of overcrowded streets and a loss of quality of life. Is Seattle becoming unfriendly to drivers? We hear from residents across the city, and Richard Conlin weighs in as chair of the city council's planning, land use, and sustainability committee. Our studio guests include developer Liz Dunn; Brock Howell of Futurewise; and architect Greg Hill. Should developers drive Seattle's parking future? Tune in this week for our lively debate!
