New Domino Mixes Parking Disaster WIth Bike-Ped Benefits

Streetsblog has a good article on the impending disaster that is Domino’s parking proposal.

That’s 1,700 cars and it’s going to really overwhelm the community; there’s no doubt about that.

1,700 or 1,500, we’re still going to be overwhelmed. Domino claims it is matching the rate of ownership in the immediate area, but their study area includes a) immediate blocks that are very sparsely populated; and b) a good swath of Hasidic Williamsburg, which has inordinately high rates of car ownership. If Domino was acting responsibly, they would limit parking to under 50% – that matches the rate of ownership for CB1 at large (and coincides more or less with the zoning minimum).
