Thank God (still an Athiest here).

Parking requirements in downtown are utter BS unless you're considering a post-war historic building with no adjoinging parking deck.

Some, especially in the Sun Belt might sob about how everyone drives but if you remove these parking requirements, people WILL find ways to make it to dense business districts. Sad that you have to force their hand, but after too many Ubers, Lyfts, or cabs, they'll realize they can't afford single passenger transpo. That's what happened in Tuscaloosa soon before I left for Birmingham, though the issue was simply a lack of parking, not a lack of parking requirements. People started realizing that it was too much of a hassle to drive to downtown and either started walking or began using public transit...
