When 10 acres of asphalt become T.O.D., will parking sink the neighborhood?

The Corcoran Neighborhood Organization (CNO) is a citizen participation organization that strives to strengthen, improve, and protect the unique character, livability, and social fabric of the neighborhood. The demand, supply, and cost of public parking have become a central issue in the public conversation about the development underway on sites to the west of the Lake Street/Midtown LRT station. A coordinated solution to parking is paramount to the success of the Corcoran neighborhood, and the successful realization of CNO’s land use plan. Sasha Bergman, an Urban and Regional Planning graduate student in the Humphrey School, defined and articulated the demand for parking in the project area and researched various solutions. The results are being used to guide and inform the community process around new development in the study area.
