Here’s a map from a recent presentation out of Saint Paul Planning and Economic Development department, a small point made in a larger conversation about updating the city’s parking requirements and policies.
Here are the maps, created by Tony Johnson at PED. The first shows the total amount of space in the city that is used for parking or streets…
The other maps break it down into categories, including garage space, parking, and right-of-way.
The final total is 33% of the land in Saint Paul. If you remove all the “natural” land like the Mississippi River valley and its adjoining bluffs, it’d be even higher.
