12:30 to 1:30 PM, SPUR Urban Center, 654 Mission Street, SAN FRANCISCO. The space devoted to parking in urban and suburban areas is highly contested, with good reason: in the 300 square feet required for a parking space, you could hold 10 bicycles or even a studio apartment. This presentation will explore how we can actively manage parking as a resource, avoid overbuilding and make the most of it in our cities.
