On an economics blog I occasionally scan I noticed a blurb about changes to parking requirements for new development in Boston and surrounding communities.
Although the idea is to encourage transit, some comments to the article suggest that not all area residents feel local transit is currently a good solution (raising questions about reliability and hours of operation). Some also point out that climate makes the city not entirely bike and pedestrian-friendly for a portion of the year. I'm guessing at least late December or early January.
One thing I find interesting about this is how some on the right seem torn between seeing this as a welcome change to free market principles or a liberal push for a car-free progressive Utopia, while some on the left can't decide whether it's a green initiative or a move to increase profits for greedy developers. This makes this a fairly unique opportunity for us to reach across the aisle and strongly support (or fight) such change together, for different reasons.
