Definition of moot point:

(n) : an issue that is subject to, or open for discussion or debate, and which could only be definitively determined by an assembly of the people; an issue regarded as potentially debatable, but no longer practically applicable.

"now that downtown has been rebuilt and business is booming, whether to build more parking spaces has become a moot point."
