The parking ratios contained in the updated Transportation Element apply to individual projects and facility master plans in the region. Following the effective date of the updated Element, individual projects subject to prior Commission action under parking ratios enacted in 2016 may be implemented using the 2016 ratios, unless project approval has expired. Installations within the L'Enfant City which currently meet the 2016 parking ratios should, at the time of their next Master Plan update, prepare a new Transportation Management Plan (TMP) in accordance with the 2020 parking ratios. Installations outside the boundary of the L'Enfant City where the parking ratio is proposed to increase should modify their existing TMP to detail how the 2020 parking ratio goals will be met over time and submit the modified TMP to the Commission at the next master plan update.
