   (B)   Location of parking areas. Required parking spaces shall be located on the same lot with the principal use. The Board may permit parking spaces to be located not more than 300 feet distance from the lot of the principal use if located in the same zoning district as the principal use, and the Board finds that is impractical to provide parking on the same lot with principal use. For uses within C-1 zoned parts of the city, on-street and municipal parking shall be considered as meeting the parking requirements, except for drive-in facilities.
   (C)   Screening and landscaping. Off-street parking areas for more than five vehicles, and off-street loading areas, shall be effectively screened on each side which adjoins or faces any residential district, except where there is a separation by public alley, street or railroad.
   (D)   Surfacing. All commercial and industrial parking areas for more than two automobiles shall have a paved or treated surface (see Appendix “A”) graded and drained to dispose of all surface water, and designed to provide for orderly and safe loading, parking and dust control, and shall be approved by the city.
   (E)   Lighting. Any lighting used to illuminate off-street parking or loading areas shall be arranged so as to reflect the light away from adjoining premises of any residential district.
   (F)   Drive-in facilities. Any establishment which has drive-in facilities, as defined in this chapter, shall, in addition to the spaces required by § 156.077(B), provide lane spaces between the service structure and the public right-of-way as designated below. A lane space shall be one vehicle in width and 22 feet long. The vehicle position at the pump island, service window, wash bay, service booth or other service structure, may be counted as one lane space.
      (1)   Drive-in theaters. Eight lane spaces per each ticket window.
      (2)   Service stations. Three lane spaces per each side of a pump island.
      (3)   Banks. Seven lane spaces per service window.
