A. 
No parking area or driveway serving one- and two-family dwellings shall be located within two (2) feet of an adjoining lot line except for joint driveways serving two (2) properties. Paved parking areas or customary driveways in the required yards abutting streets shall not exceed thirty-five percent (35%) of the area of those yards for one- and two-family dwellings.
B. 
For one- and two-family dwellings parking shall be restricted to customary passenger cars and motor vehicles of a gross weight of eight thousand (8,000) pounds and less than twenty (20) feet in length. Such passenger cars and motor vehicles must be parked on driveways or in garages paved in accordance with Section 425.050.
C. 
In Districts "R-3" through "R-6", additional parking may be required for campers, boats, trailers and the like. Such vehicles will be parked in well screened parking lots or parking garages and will not be permitted to occupy a regular parking space. The number of such spaces will be set by the Planning Commission.
D. 
In Districts "R-3" through "R-6", no parking shall be permitted in the required front yard or side yard when abutting a street.
E. 
All parking lots and drives leading thereto, except those serving single-family and two-family dwellings, shall have curbs and drainage facilities approved by the City Engineer. Where greater setback requirements do not prevail, the back of the curb of a paved parking area shall not be closer than six (6) feet to a property line, except that in a planned zoning district, the Planning Commission may permit a lesser setback where similar development on an adjoining lot will produce a satisfactory relationship.
F. 
The Planning Commission may require that a parking area be screened on any side where it may adversely affect adjacent property by a wall, a fence or screen planting or a combination to a height that the Commission deems adequate.
G. 
A portion of the parking area required under this Title may remain unimproved until such time as the City Council deems it must be improved to serve the parking demand adequately. Such delayed improvement may be permitted only after the Planning Commission is satisfied that the initial occupancy of the premises will be adequately served by the lesser number of spaces and only after approval of a final development plan indicating clearly the location, pattern and circulation to and from the delayed parking spaces. The land area so delineated for future parking shall be brought to finished grade, be landscaped and shall not be used for building, storage, loading or other purposes.
H. 
Handicapped. Parking spaces shall be not less than twelve (12) feet wide and located as close as possible to ramps, walkways and entrances. Such spaces shall be identified by handicapped signs. For the number of spaces required see the Building Code.
The Planning Commission, in specific cases, may require that any screen planting, fence or wall around a parking lot shall be set back from a street if such setback will prevent adverse effects upon the appropriate use of adjacent property or will prevent a traffic hazard, but provided that such setback need not be greater than the respective front or side yard requirements in that district.
