Parking review to be issued by Birmingham

August 31, 2018

A request to include a review of parking requirements for residential units in the downtown area in a current parking review contract was unanimously approved by Birmingham city commissioners at their meeting on Monday, August 27.

Assistant city manager Tiffany Gunter explained to commissioners that the parking requirement review would be added to an existing contract with Nelson Nygaard for parking master plan services that the city contracted for in February 2018. The firm will evaluate parking requirements for both private developments and mixed use zone districts in the downtown overlay district, the Triangle District and the Rail District.

The approved cost is not to exceed $17,640.

Currently, parking is required to be provided for residential uses on all properties, whether or not they are located within a parking assessment district. In the central business district, there is no requirement to provide parking for office or retail uses.
