Regulations Would Eliminate 'Too Much Parking' in Downtown Brooklyn

Today a City Council panel will be considering new zoning regulations that would eliminate parking spaces in Downtown Brooklyn.

It seems that many residents of Downtown Brooklyn don't own cars and spaces in residential developments are going empty.

The New York Times reports the new.regulations would allow developers who already have built excess parking to convert the unneeded space to other uses.

BP Marty Markowitz thinks some of those spaces should be converted into bicycle parking -- not a bad idea, but one the Council will not consider.
