Cambridge proposal to eliminate parking requirements for new developments – NECN ThePipaNews

ThePipaNews

Finding parking can be a major problem in the densely populated communities of Greater Boston, such as Cambridge. Now a controversial proposal could mean fewer parking spaces in Cambridge, but more housing in the city.

The proposal is to scrap so-called minimum parking requirements for new homes in the city. This means that developers could basically build a new apartment building without ensuring that there is a certain number of parking spaces to go along with it.

Supporters of the idea say developers could build more units, without having to worry about building a parking lot next to the project, which could help solve the housing crisis there.

But opponents say this plan will only worsen an already limited parking situation in Cambridge. In some parts of the city, developers must build a new parking space for each housing unit, according to the Boston Globe. This proposal would eliminate that.

Another public hearing is set on the proposal on Wednesday at 5:30 p.m
