A. Notwithstanding section 10-3-2730 of this chapter, as part of a planned development application pursuant to article 18.4 of this chapter, the planning commission may establish the minimum number of parking spaces required to serve a retail department store or convenience service use. The planning commission shall not establish a minimum number of parking spaces that alters the number of parking spaces otherwise required by this code by more than ten percent (10%). In addition, the planning commission may permit up to twenty percent (20%) of the required parking spaces to be provided as compact or tandem spaces.
B. As part of a planned development application pursuant to article 18.4, the planning commission may require up to one hundred additional parking spaces to be provided to serve legally nonconforming commercial structures which are altered or expanded pursuant to this article.
C. All parking that is required by this article shall conform to a parking program approved by the planning commission as part of a planned development approval pursuant to article 18.4 of this chapter. The parking program shall include monitoring programs and may include measures such as: 1) free parking for employees, and 2) free validated self and valet parking for patrons, as necessary to minimize the parking and circulation impacts of the project on the surrounding streets and to ensure that vehicle queuing will not occur in the public right of way nor impede access to a parking facility. The monitoring program shall be implemented by the applicant at its expense. In addition, the monitoring program shall provide the city with continuing jurisdiction to require the implementation of additional measures by the applicant to ensure that vehicles will not impede traffic in the public right of way.
D. Any department store developed pursuant to the provisions of this article shall provide a valet queuing area of sufficient size and configuration to ensure that vehicle queuing will not occur in the public right of way nor impede access to a parking facility.
E. Any retail department store or ancillary use shall be designed to prevent vehicular traffic generated by such development from using any alley located immediately adjacent to an R-4X2 zone.
F. Parking required pursuant to this article for any retail department store shall be located on or adjacent to the site area of such store unless otherwise approved by the planning commission as part of a planned development pursuant to article 18.4 of this chapter. If approved, the facility containing such parking shall be located no more than seventy five feet (75') from the retail department store site area.
G. Notwithstanding section 10-3-2734 of this chapter, parking shall not be provided on a separate lot from the use which it serves, except as provided in this section.
H. Notwithstanding any other provision of this code regarding parking for restaurant uses, the amount of parking required per square foot for restaurants that are convenience service activities shall be equivalent to the amount of parking required per square foot for retail department stores.
