Off-Street Parking Requirements. Except as otherwise provided in this Chapter, when any building or structure is hereafter erected or structurally altered to the extent of increasing the floor area by fifty percent (50%) or more, or any building or structure is hereafter converted to any of the uses listed in Column 1, when such uses are located in the districts listed in Column 2, accessory off-street parking shall be provided as required by Column 3 or as required in subsequent portions of this Section.
Interpretation Of The Chart.
Where fractional spaces result, the parking spaces required shall be construed to the next highest whole number.
The parking space requirements for a use not specifically listed in the chart shall be the same as for a listed use of similar characteristics of parking demand generation.
Whenever a building or use constructed or established after the effective date of these regulations is changed or enlarged in number of units, seating capacity or otherwise to create a need for an increase of ten percent (10%) or more in the number of existing parking spaces, such spaces shall be provided on the basis of the enlargement or change.
Joint Use Of Off-Site Facilities.
All parking spaces required herein shall be located on the same lot with the building or use served, except that where an increase in the number of spaces is required by a change or enlargement of use or where such spaces are provided collectively or used jointly by two (2) or more buildings or establishments, the required spaces may be located and maintained not to exceed three hundred (300) feet from the building served.
Where the required parking spaces are not located on the same lot with the building or use served, or where such spaces are collectively or jointly provided and used, a restrictive agreement properly executed and recorded by the parties concerned shall assure their retention for a period no less than twenty (20) years. This agreement shall be filed with the application for building permit and shall be in a form prescribed by and have the approval of the City Attorney. Such spaces shall be properly identified for use by the permittee.
Nothing contained in this Section shall apply to the "PHFC".
For the purpose of these regulations, an "off-street parking space" is an impervious surfaced area, either bituminous or concrete, driveway paver blocks or similar material as approved by the Building Commissioner, not in a street or alley and having an area of not less than one hundred eighty (180) square feet and being not less than nine (9) feet in width, exclusive of driveways, permanently reserved for the temporary storage of one (1) motor vehicle and connected with a street or alley by an all-weather surfaced driveway which affords ingress and egress for a motor vehicle without requiring another motor vehicle to be moved. The design, construction and improvement of any off-street parking space shall be approved by City's Building Commissioner and Zoning Administrator before any permit is issued therefor.
Off-street parking facilities shall be drained to prevent damage to abutting property or public streets and alleys and surfaced with erosion-resistant material in accordance with the requirements of the Building Commissioner and Zoning Administrator. Off-street parking areas shall be maintained in a clean, orderly and dust-free condition at the expense of the owner or lessee and not used for the sale, repair or dismantling or servicing of any vehicles, equipment, materials or supplies.
Whenever an off-street parking lot in the "C" or "C-1" Districts adjoins or is immediately across a street from a "R-1" or "R-2" Zoning District, it shall be the responsibility of the property owner in the "C" or "C-1" Zoned District to erect and/or maintain either a screen planting or, with the permission of the affected residential property owner, a fence, which screen planting or fence shall be not less than five (5) feet in height and shall provide a visual barrier blocking the view of the commercial district along that portion of the parking lot. Such screen planting or fence shall be located on the "C" or "C-1" zoned property.

The loading space shall be within or immediately adjacent to the building and shall be not less than twelve (12) feet in width, forty (40) feet in depth and a vertical clearance of at least fourteen and one-half (14.5) feet for the loading and unloading of trucks. It shall be so designed that trucks may enter and leave the access street without unduly interfering with vehicular movement thereon.
