    Why does this development provide parking for almost every unit (despite it being within walking distance to the Canda Line and two bus lines; while another development in East Vancouver (1405 East 15th Avenue and 3071-3047 Maddams St) provides parking for only 30% of units?

    LC asked 5 months ago

    Applicants can choose to provide the parking supply within the limits set by the Parking Bylaw for their development. In addition, rental developments are eligible for up to 60% reductions to their vehicle parking depending on their proximity to transit and with a provision of a Transportation Demand Management (TDM) Plan. Outside of the downtown core, TDM plans are optional if the developers wishes to pursue additional parking reductions. The application for this site is meeting the parking bylaw minimums and the applicant has chosen not to pursue any additional options for parking reductions.
