Off-Street Parking Community Meetings
The Houston Planning Commission is examining off-street parking issues and whether changes to Chapter 26 of the Code of Ordinances are needed. Some of the topics that will be discussed include, but are not limited to shared parking, parking management areas, types of occupancy and intensity of use (i.e. bars, types of restaurants, etc.), parking incentives for development along transit corridors or for restoration of historic buildings, lifts and valet parking, just to name a few.
The community meetings are as follows:
Wednesday, April 7 from 4:00 - 6:00 p.m.
Wednesday, April 14 from 4:30 - 6:30 p.m.
Wednesday, April 21 from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.
