PARKING AND THE ENVIRONMENT: WHERE ARE WE NOW?

The Clean Air Act of 1970, is discussed particularly as related to the parking regulations which were proposed soon after passage of the act. Two types of regulations were planned: indirect source review, and parking management regulations. The Clean Air Act required that each state implement its own plans for both the attainment of ambient air quality standards by certain deadline dates and continue to maintain such standards once attained. Studies indicate that rigid indirect source review regulations are required, as well as further transportation plans to accomplish the task. Such plans include parking management regulations, mass transit improvements, inspection and maintenance programs, carpool matching programs, exclusive bus and carpool lanes, incentive programs, and the retrofit of older automobiles with emission control devices. Opposition to the act and resultant regulation proposals are reviewed and congressional action in this area is briefly discussed.
