Add Space for Bikes = Reduce Car Parking Requirements

Car + bike parking

Did you know that by installing bicycle parking, the Dunwoody city ordinance allows for a REDUCTION in minimum car parking requirements? Any nonresidential use may convert or substitute up to 25 required motor vehicle parking spaces.

This is a hidden gem that needs to be shared with any upcoming new development in our city.

A single car parking space can be removed by providing either:

  • Six spaces for a bicycle to park (short-term, aka bike racks)
  • Two long-term bicycle parking spaces provided. (bike storage lockers)
