The Iowa City City Council will vote on the second consideration of a rezoning amendment increasing the number of required parking spaces for several multifamily dwelling units in the University Impact Area.

City officials said illegal and congested parking in the University Impact Area has been a concern, and this amendment would alleviate some of those problems.

Approval of the amendment would require that at least one parking space be provided for each bedroom in specified zones.

The councilors previously approved the first consideration of the amendment at their April 17 meeting on a 6-1 vote with only Councilor Terry Dickens voting no.

The councilors will vote on the second consideration of the amendment at their next meeting, May 1.
