CommonWealth takes note of some recent proposals for new residential complexes in the city that will have little or no parking spots for tenants (like this one next to the Ashmont Red Line station), and says the BPDA is taking steps to ensure the residents actually use public transit and not clog up neighboring streets with their cars - such as creating a registry of the buildings so that the city can bar their residents from getting residential parking permits.
Maybe this time the BRA, um, BPDA, has finally fixed its record keeping and so these records of buildings won't simply disappear into the ether like they used to.
Also, this transit-oriented-development stuff only goes so far. Last month, a developer proposed a 72-unit development with 84 parking spaces. Granted, in West Roxbury, but it's right on Washington Street, which is served by the 34 and 34E
