No less than four (4) parking spaces shall be provided for each primary residence located within the Hillside Area unless the primary residence has a floor area of less than six thousand (6,000) square feet. If the primary residence has a floor area of less than six thousand (6,000) square feet, then only three (3) parking spaces shall be required.
A. At least two (2) of the parking spaces required by this section shall be covered by a permanent structure.
B. The dimensions of each parking space shall comply with the parking standards adopted by the city council and on file in the department of building and safety. However, if the width of a portion of an existing paved driveway is restricted by the location of an existing residence, or if the width of a portion of a paved driveway is restricted by the construction of a porte cochere, to a width less than that required by the parking standards, but not less than eight feet (8'), then, notwithstanding its inadequate width, such portion of the driveway shall be considered to comply with the parking standards provided that such area complies with all other requirements of the parking standards.
C. No required parking space shall be provided within a front yard. Furthermore, any additional parking areas that are not required by this code shall be set back a minimum of five feet (5') from any front lot line or street side lot line. Such five foot (5') setback area shall be landscaped.

Parking areas, or portions thereof, located in any side or rear yard or exposed to view from a street shall be completely screened from the view of the adjacent property by a fence or hedge at least six feet (6') in height and from any street by a fence or a hedge at least three feet (3') in height, except that an entryway not to exceed ten feet (10') in width may be provided from the street, such screening shall not encroach into the required dimensions of the parking space.
