Mayor and Council Public Hearing on Commercial Parking amendment scheduled for April 19, 2022

Mayor and Council will hold a Public Hearing on Tuesday, April 19 at 5:30 pm on a proposed amendment to the Unified Development Code which would affect commercial parking requirements. This proposed code change would:

  • Require new multifamily, commercial and retail development to have use-based levels of electric vehicle (EV)-readiness.
  • Expand eligibility for the Individual Parking Plan to affordable housing developments, restaurants, and bars

Planning Commission held a public hearing on Wednesday, March 2 on the proposed commercial parking text amendment. After taking public comment, the Planning Commission recommended approval of this proposed code change, with additional recommendations to review the amendment in 1-2 years and to consider reducing the minimum parking requirement for affordable housing. 

The proposed code amendment is informed by consultation with stakeholders as well as public meetings held in November 2021. 

The Public Hearing on April 19 will be held virtually. The meeting agenda contains instructions on how to join the meeting or request to speak. Public comments may also be sent to cityclerk@tucsonaz.gov.
