Rethinking Parking with Brian Canepa, Principal, Nelson/Nygaard Transportation Consulting
Rethinking Parking. Thursday, November 8, 7- 8:30 PM; Sunnyvale Heritage Park Museum, 570 E. Remington Drive, Sunnyvale. Brian Canepa, Principal at Nelson\Nygaard Transportation Consulting, brings an analytical eye to parking practices that so often go unexamined. How have parking practices shaped our cities and transportation choices? How much does parking really cost? What are the trade-offs in providing too much or too little parking? How can parking requirements be set based on empirical data? What are other cities doing to update parking practices and what are the results? What strategies and policies can be considered to make parking requirements more flexible? Snacks provided. No charge. This free presentation is made possible by a generous grant from the Silicon Valley Community Foundation. Hosted by SunnyvaleCool.org. Co-sponsored by Sierra Club Loma Prieta Chapter, Transform, Acterra, Transition Silicon Valley, Greenbelt Alliance, GreenTown Los Altos, Silicon Valley Leadership Group, and the American Planning Association California Northern Section.
