Atlantic Avenue parking incentives, originally put in place to attract new restaurants downtown, were taken off the plate in September, deemed unnecessary in an area with an abundance of eateries.
Commissioners passed the measure 3-2, reconsidering it after first turning it down in recent weeks.
The measure doubles the parking requirement for new restaurants on Atlantic between Northeast/Southeast Fifth Avenue to 12 spaces per 1,000 square feet of seating spaces from the former six.
Delray Beach staff earlier mentioned devising new incentives to lure retail to the area, but no other details have been offered. — Margie Plunkett
