these new standards were adopted by city council this past weekend

Generally speaking, the government should only impose requirements if there is a concern that the market would fail to provide a necessary function. That was never true with parking, but it became an inviolable rule that every new development had to provide parking in amounts that would meet or exceed the highest conceivable demand. The predictable result was oversupply, which hampered any ability to charge for parking and thereby created yet another hidden subsidy to drivers.

The new standards passed by 6-1, Mayor Silberberg casting the only no vote.
