1 step closer: Fee in Lieu of Parking Victory
in Lieu of parking was unanimously passed by the Portland City
The League, through the Maine Alliance of Sustainable Transportation has
worked hard over the past year to get this passed.
because allowing developers to pay a fee-in-lieu of building parking
spaces is a great way to incentivize creative development that reduces demand
for off-street parking. In addition, fee-in-lieu can be used to more efficiently
manage a parking system, and will generate revenue for the city by establishing a “Sustainable Transportation
Fund,” a dedicated source of funding for the transit and infrastructure
improvements recommended in the Transit Plan.
Thanks to our councilors for all voting the right way!
