Culver City attempts to increase parking in the Hayden Tract while Santa Monica reduces parking requirements in the old LSMD

The Culver City Planning Commission last Wednesday voted for a plan to encourage additional and alternative parking in the Hayden and Blackwelder Tract.  Under the new plan, a parking district would be created whereby owners could lease offsite parking anywhere in the district to satisfy parking requirements.  Further, parking requirements could be satisfied by mechanical parking, valet parking, or compact parking.

Meanwhile, the Santa Monica City Council  approved a plan for the Bergamont Transit Area (the old LSMD near Bergamont Station)  that reduces  required parking for office to 2 cars per 1000 square feet but also limits properties to a maximum of four cars per 1000 square feet.  As more parking spaces are built in the area, the maximum amount of parking that a property can have will be 2 spaces per 1000 square feet.
