Even though many local residents disagree with the decision, the town council has ordered that the downtown parking rules be changed and a new parking garage built.

"order" is one of those verbs (think, say,...) that require "that" in 99% of the cases. To understand the cases in which is not necessary consider the following case
Paul says that (something); Paul says "(his words)". So out B.

C stands out because uses "should". If you decide on something, your decision will not be expressed by "should ": your decision "is" not "should be". Out C

Lets analyze A D E together:
A. that the downtown parking rules be changed and a new parking garage built.
D. that the downtown parking rules be changed and a new parking garage to be built.
E. that the downtown parking rules be changed and a new parking garage is built.

Their only difference is the final verb. To pick the correct one we must mantain the parallelism:
be changed and (...) A) build D)to be built E)is built
A mantains the structure. A is correct

A classic case of command subjunctive mood. . Three things are essential to expose subjunctives here. 1. An expression that exposes mandateness explicitly or implictly.2. The connecting subordinate conjunction ‘that’. and 3. the base form of the verb in the sub-clause

A. that the downtown parking rules be changed and a new parking garage built ------- Correct choice that satisfies all the three norms of the command subjunctive. Here built means ‘ be built’

B. the downtown parking rules to be changed, with a new parking garage being built ----hanges meaning to say that council ordered the rules and it also implies that the new garage is already being built. c

C. that the downtown parking rules should be changed and a new parking garage built. ---- Should be changed is not a subjunctive mood idiom.

D. that the downtown parking rules be changed and a new parking garage to be built. --- infinitives have no place in subjunctives

E. that the downtown parking rules be changed and a new parking garage is built.----'
is built' is not part of of subjunctive idiom.
