Getting home on two wheels

The Post real estate section has a good article on how more real estate agents are pitching the benefits of living in bike-friendly properties as more customers demand bike parking and access to bike facilities. The article, As two-wheeled commutes grow in popularity, buyers look for bike-accessible homes mentions efforts in DC and Montgomery County to improve their bike parking regulations:
However, such storage may become more common in the District starting in late 2011, when the city's zoning laws are expected to be updated. According to a draft of the regulations issued last month, new residential buildings with 10 or more dwelling units will be required to provide three long-term bicycle parking spaces per four units and one short-term bike parking space per 20 units, with a minimum of two bike parking spaces in each case.
Noticeably absent is any mention of Fairfax County, which has no bike parking requirements or guidelines. The county has been developing bike parking regulations since November 2007.
