It Takes A Village To Allow Parking Credits On Glendale Blvd
Glendale Boulevard businesses in Atwater Village may be getting a break on parking. According to the Los Feliz Ledger via EastsiderLA, "The Los Angeles Planning Commission recently approved a parking credit program that if enacted would ease parking requirements for new businesses along Glendale Boulevard."
Businesses required to have a specific number of parking spaces would no longer have to to pay fees for parking spots tob e specially installed on their property. This program would allow them to instead buy "parking credits" from the city at a much cheaper rate.
Atwater Village Neighborhood Council co-chair Robert Smith (no not that Robert Smith) said business owners would pay as little as $75 annually per credit. The ordinance, however, must be approved by the Los Angeles City Council. The Field Deputy for Council District 13 (which oversees Atwater Village) expects a decision within the next few council sessions.
