All developments in all districts except for the "C-2" Central Business shall provide sufficient off-street parking spaces to accommodate vehicles that are likely to be attracted to the development.
All parking spaces required herein shall be located on the same lot with the principal building or use served, except as provided in this Article. If the off-street parking spaces required by this Article cannot reasonably be provided on the lot on which the principal use is located, such parking space may be provided on a lot within four hundred (400) feet of the principal use or building. The principal use shall be permitted to continue only as long as its parking requirements are met.
Whenever a building constructed or a use established after the effective date of this Chapter is changed or enlarged in floor area, number of employees, number of dwelling 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. Whenever a building or use existing prior to the effective date of this Chapter is enlarged to the extent of fifty percent (50%) or more in floor area or in the area used, said building or use shall then and thereafter comply with the parking requirements set forth herein.
All required off-street parking shall be provided on a paved surface impervious to water.
Off-street parking facilities shall comply with the requirements of the Americans With Disabilities Act.
Where fractional spaces result in computation of parking space requirements, the parking spaces required shall be computed to the nearest whole number.
