PRN provides the tools, the resources, and, of course, the network people need to reform parking policy in their own communities across North America. That’s why last December, PRN became the first advocacy organization I ever promoted on my channel. If you aren’t a PRN member already, please join and consider doing it as a monthly contribution. Our cities are worth fighting for, and PRN is critical to that fight.
Opponents of parking reform are often worried that removing parking mandates will lead to curbside congestion and inconvenience nearby residents and businesses. Fortunately, there are proven strategies to keep that from happening, and cities can get well ahead of the issue.
Black Friday is the day that reveals one of the worst flaws in the American landscape: We have way too much parking. To showcase the scale of the problem using social media posts, we are using the hashtag #BlackFridayParking. This year’s campaign brings together more than a dozen organizations, advocates, and influencers on social media to draw attention to how wasteful and destructive parking requirements are marring our landscapes and making our places less productive. Join PRN and Strong Towns in challenging excessive and costly parking mandates!
