(a) When required. In all districts, except the D-4 district, in connection with every industrial, business, institutional, recreational, residential or any other use, there shall be provided at the time any building or structure is erected or is enlarged or increased in capacity, off-street parking spaces for automobiles in accordance with the requirements herein.
(b) Minimum size. Parking spaces that are not designated for handicapped parking or loading zones shall be at least nine feet wide and 20 feet long. Handicapped parking spaces shall meet the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (42 U.S.C. §§ 12101 et seq.).
(c) Access. There shall be adequate provision for ingress and egress to and from all parking spaces. No driveway on public property shall exceed 40 feet in width where it crosses the public sidewalk and shall not exceed 65 feet in width along the curbline. Whenever more than one driveway is constructed from any one street over public property, the driveway shall be separated by an intervening raised space or raised island not less than six inches high located between the walk and the curbline of not less than 40 feet in width parallel to the public walk or right-of-way. This requirement may be reduced in B, B-1 and C-1 districts. Where a lot does not abut on a public or private right-of-way or easement of access, there shall be provided an access drive not less than eight feet in width in the case of a dwelling, and not less than 18 feet in width in all other cases, unless used for either ingress or egress only, leading to the parking or storage areas or loading and unloading spaces required hereunder in such manner as to secure the most appropriate development of the property in question. Except where provided in connection with a use permitted in a residence district, such easement of access or access drive shall not be located in any residence district.
(d) Type. Parking spaces for all types of uses may be provided either in garages or parking areas conforming with the provisions of this chapter.
(e) Traffic engineering review. The Traffic Engineer of the City shall review all site plans for developments in all districts and may allow driveway dimensions larger than stated before, for particular traffic or circulation conditions.
