Each parking space in a garage can take up as much as 400 square feet, or 36% of an average Arlington apartment, and spaces can cost anywhere from $40,000 to $60,000 each to build. The availability of parking also has a strong influence on the transportation choices that we make. That is why County policy encourages staff and the Board to:

- Allow reductions in parking at locations well served by other transportation modes
- Reduce parking requirements for affordable housing
