As stated, the topic was before birthday It was left off the city council’s agenda because coalition partners CSU and Greens were going to do business with each other. As reported, the city mainly plans to slightly reduce the number of mandatory parking spaces in new multi-family buildings (from 1.1 to 1.0 per apartment). At the same time, the number of bicycle and cargo parking spaces will be increased.
