Columbus Updates Parking Code for Bikes

The city of Columbus has overhauled legislation on parking at new developments, seeking to limit parking spaces and expand amenities for cyclists, according to The Columbus Dispatch.

Here’s a rundown of the new requirements:

– Every type of building — bowling alleys, churches, shopping centers, restaurants, office buildings, etc. — must provide a minimum of two bike-parking spaces.

– Bigger places must provide an extra bike parking spot for every 20 car-parking spaces, up to a maximum of 20 bike spaces.

– Bike racks must be anchored to the ground and support a bicycle upright in two places.

– The rules apply for new developments or when a building’s use changes (if a restaurant becomes a retail store, for example).
