   In computing the number of parking spaces required by this Code, the following rules shall apply:
   (a)   Floor Area.  Where floor area is designated as the standard for determining parking space requirements, gross floor area shall be used for all land uses, unless specifically noted otherwise.
   (b)   Seats.  Where seating capacity is the standard for determining parking spaces, the capacity shall mean the number of seating units installed or indicated, or one (1) seat for each two (2) feet of benches or pews, or when fixed seats are not indicated, the capacity shall be determined as being one (1) seat for each twenty (20) square feet of floor area of the assembly room.
   (c)   Employees.  Where employees are the standard for determining parking space requirements, employees shall mean the maximum number of employees on single shift.
   (d)   Fractional Numbers.  Where the computation results in a fractional unit, one (1)  additional off-street parking space shall be provided.
   (e)   Parking for Mixed Uses.  Where a building or group of buildings contains two (2) or more uses, operating normally during the same hours, the number of parking spaces for each use shall be computed separately and  the total spaces provided shall not be less than the sum of the spaces required for each use, except as otherwise provided for in this Chapter.
   (f)   Parking Requirements for Uses Not Specified
      (1)   When the off-street parking requirements for a use are not specifically defined herein, the parking facilities for such use shall be determined by the Planning Commission based on the standard for the use determined to be most similar to the proposed use. 
      (2)   Appeal of a requirement established by the Planning Commission according to this Section and deemed to be too restrictive by the applicant shall be reviewed by the Board of Zoning Appeals.
