PLANiTULSA: Tulsa's approach to parking outdated, adviser says

The consultant on the city's comprehensive plan update says it's time that Tulsa changes its approach to parking.

"The current parking standards are really classic 1960s — based on convenience for automobile drivers," John Fregonese told the Tulsa Metropolitan Area Planning Commission last week.

He also said he will recommend that the city adopt shared parking practices that include the creation of parking districts.

The goal: to create more pedestrian-friendly environments by decreasing the number of parking spaces. (Read the Tulsa World story)
