What's the bigger problem right now across the country? Lack of housing in urban centers, or above ground parking? Let's keep our priorities straight. There's ample evidence that regulatory costs are in large part responsible for the relative dearth of development.

A ban is too rigid, too severe a constraint. A tax on above ground (or a subsidy for below) would be a more flexible approach that acknowledges that below ground parking is not always economical.
