City Parking Studies

Parking Standards for New Development Projects Study

At the direction of City Council, the City of Alexandria has commenced a study to evaluate existing parking standards for development projects and establish updated parking standards for new development projects. The purpose of the study is to review the City's parking standards, which have not had a comprehensive review since 1992, and provide parking standards that reflect existing parking demand and market trends. Non-auto travel (including transit use, cycling and walking) has steadily increased since the City's current standards were set and there are indications that per household car ownership is declining in areas with better access to transit. This project will be conducted in two phases. The first phase will examine and provide updated standards for new multi-family residential developments. Phase 2 of the study will evaluate the parking standards for new retail, commercial, and office development.
