Here is another statewide proposal, which may help us build urban infill more sustainably.
Please find attached a draft letter of support for AB 710, which your organization may want to adopt and/or modify with your own recommendations upon further review.
AB 710 is being introduced by Assembly Member Skinner as the Infill Development and Sustainable Community Act of 2011.
"AB 710 would decrease the minimum parking requirements in transit intensive areas, thereby increasing project feasibility and lowering project costs. AB 710 also provides some flexibility to local jurisdictions that may require higher minimums if written findings are made based upon substantial evidence in the record including a parking utilization study."
I believe this bill will be discussed on April 27th at the next Assembly Housing & Community Development Committee meeting.
Very truly yours,
