Transit Priority Area Multifamily Residential Parking Standards

To address the statewide housing crisis at the local level, the City of San Diego's Planning Department is conducting a study to examine options of efficiency-based parking standards in Transit Priority Areas (TPAs). California Senate Bill 743 (2013) defines a TPA as an area located within one-half mile of a major transit stop, such as trolley, bus, or ferry. The goal of this study is to develop a regulatory framework that tailors parking requirements for multifamily residential developments based on their land use context and other key factors that influence the parking demand. This aligns with Mayor Faulconer's Housing SD Plan to improve housing affordability and supports the Climate Action Plan by encouraging the use of alternative modes of transportation.
