AB-1401 Residential and commercial development: parking requirements.(2021-2022)

As Amends the Law Today


 Section 65863.3 is added to the Government Code, to read:

 (a) A local government shall not impose a minimum automobile parking requirement, or enforce a minimum automobile parking requirement, on residential, commercial, or other development if the parcel is located within one-half mile walking distance of public transit.
(b) When a project provides parking voluntarily, nothing in this section shall preclude a local government from imposing requirements on that voluntary parking to require spaces for car share vehicles.
(c) For purposes of this section, “public transit” means either of the following:
(1) A high-quality transit corridor as defined in subdivision (b) of Section 21155 of the Public Resources Code.
(2) A major transit stop as defined in Section 21064.3 of the Public Resources Code.
(d) The Legislature finds and declares that this section addresses a matter of statewide concern rather than a municipal affair as that term is used in Section 5 of Article XI of the California Constitution. Therefore, this section applies to all cities, including charter cities.
SEC. 2.
