A nice article about Evanston, IL

“The Suburb That Tried To Kill the Car”
http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2015/10/evanston-illinois-what-works-213282#ixzz3pOrmATRi

“Evanston’s willingness to abandon its tight parking restrictions to facilitate the growth around the transit hubs is working: Ownership of one car or none within half a mile of Evanston’s downtown “L” and commuter rail stops was 47 percent in 2009 compared with 80 percent for all of Evanston.”

Meanwhile, in Victoria state, Australia,

If you’re developing an apartment block in a narrow, dead-end street that’s next to a railway station, bike path, car share service, bus route and tram line, should you be required to provide private car parking as well?

Yes, according to the state planning tribunal, which has overturned a council’s approval for a “deep green” apartment development in Brunswick after a neighbouring developer objected.
