Body
WHEREAS, the City of Pittsburgh wishes to eliminate minimum parking requirements for the development of single-family attached dwellings in order to improve pedestrian safety in our neighborhoods, reduce the number of curb cuts on neighborhood sidewalks, and limit removal of on-street parking spaces; and,

WHEREAS, the removal of minimum parking requirements for development of single-family attached dwellings furthers the City's goals of improving pedestrian safety, enhancing neighborhood walkability, and promoting non-vehicular mobility.

The Council of the City of Pittsburgh hereby enacts as follows:
