Today, #DamienTalks with Colin Parent, the Policy Council for Circulate San Diego. Last week, Circulate released the first of a series of reports that look at how the city's policies support, or hinder, the city's efforts to meets its environmental goals. Read the report, here.

Last week's report looked at San Diego's parking policies and how they're hurting planning efforts around transit oriented development. For example, San Diego has a goal of making all trips near transit car-free by 2035. On the other, zoning requirements require two parking spaces for every housing unit built, even if its near a major transit hub.

Either the city is planning for a lot of empty car parking spaces, or it isn't serious about making its goals.

Parent gives a lot more detail than my one-liners. Give it a listen and let us know what you think in the comments section.

We’re always looking for sponsors, show ideas, and feedback. You can contact me at damien@streetsblog.org, at twitter @damientypes, online at Streetsblog California or on Facebook at StreetsblogCA.
