    by Angie Schmitt

    This week we’re really getting into the thick of our Parking Madness tournament, the hunt for the worst parking crater in an American downtown.

    Today’s match-up features a Kentucky river city that has done a number on its downtown and a California beach city with a weak spot for asphalt: It’s Louisville versus San Diego! Don’t forget to vote at the bottom.

    In a Landslide, Tulsa Wins the Parking Madness “Golden Crater” Award
    Thursday, April 11, 2013
    by Angie Schmitt

    Streetsblog readers have spoken — and they have annointed Tulsa, Oklahoma, as the champion of Parking Madness, our hunt for the worst parking crater in an American downtown.

    The final match was a total blowout, with Tulsa stomping Milwaukee in our poll, 483 to 124. In the end, no other downtown could compare to the parking devastation on the south side of Tulsa. And so we award Tulsa Streetsblog’s first “Golden Crater” award.

    by Angie Schmitt

    How Denver Repaired Its Epic Parking Crater
    Monday, May 13, 2013
    by Angie Schmitt

    The above photo is downtown Denver in 1976. Not pretty is it? But Denver doesn’t look like that anymore. And that’s no accident. Even though that picture is what inspired Streetsblog’s Parking Madness competition, Denver didn’t even make it past the first round in our hunt for the worst parking crater in an American downtown.

    This is what this part of Denver looks like today:

    Someone who doesn’t know any better would think that the USA also got bombed during WWII.

    by Angie Schmitt

    Like many American cities, and maybe more than most, downtown Atlanta is riddled with surface parking lots that return little value in terms of revenue or curb appeal. The Atlanta Bicycle Coalition recently noted there’s an idea gaining momentum that could change incentives for land owners: a tax assessed either on the owners of parking spaces or the drivers who use them. Riffing off the bike coalition’s post, Darin at ATLUrbanist says:
