Frey pushes enforcement of landscape requirements for parking lots

Body: 

Ward 3 City Council Member Jacob Frey is pushing an initiative that would require owners of surface parking lots to adhere to the city’s current landscaping requirements or risk losing their operating license.

Minneapolis’ parking lot design requirements already have a series of landscaping standards that were never enforced and rarely followed. According to the ordinance on the books, parking lots must include: 

-- A landscaped yard at least seven feet wide along the public right-of-way, nine feet wide for parking lots with more than 100 spaces.
