Meredith Joy at Yay Bikes brings us this graphic from Kyle Ezell's website, GetUrban.com.
So, what are we looking at, here? Well, cartographic fans among you will recognize this as downtown Columbus. The red spots indicate surface parking lots. In studying this, I don't think it includes parking structures, only surface lots (using the location of the Laveque Tower parking garage as a guide).
And people complain that there's not enough parking downtown! Think of all the historic buildings that Columbus used to have that have come down to provide temporary parking for cars. It's just more indication that better urban planning is something that Columbus needs to adopt.
I'd be interested to see, though, how much the parking situation has changed with more people taking public transportation, biking, and walking ever since the fuel price hikes!
People, not speed.
