In order to minimize excess areas of pavement which may result in adverse aesthetic impacts and contributed to high rates of storm water runoff, off-street parking lots exceeding the minimum parking space requirements by greater than 20% shall be prohibited, unless the applicant can demonstrate that additional parking is necessary to the operation of the proposed use.
   Factors to be considered in such documentation shall include but need not be limited to the type of use proposed, examples of similar uses, requiring such additional parking and whether such additional parking is for seasonal or peak periods only.
(Ord. 518.  Passed 3-3-15.)
