10.30.060   Off-Street Parking Space Requirements.
   A.   Facilities Required by Type of Use. Table 3-3 establishes the spaces and facilities required for off-street parking for the uses specified. These standards shall apply at the time a new structure is erected or placed on the ground, when an existing structure is altered or enlarged, when a new land use is established, and/or when a use is intensified by the addition of floor space or seating capacity, unless otherwise specified in this Chapter.
   B.   Uses Not Listed. Where the parking requirements for a use are not specifically listed in Table 3-3, the parking requirements for such a use shall be determined by the Director. Such determination shall be based upon the requirements for the most comparable and/or similar use. Such determinations shall be documented in writing and shall be appealable pursuant to Chapter 10.114 (Appeals).
   C.   Rounding. When the computation of the required number of off-street parking spaces results in a fractional space, the number of required spaces shall be rounded to the nearest whole number.
   D.   Mixed Occupancies. In the case of mixed uses or occupancies in a structure and/or on a lot, the total number of off-street parking spaces shall be calculated for each use by applying the required parking standard for the principal use to each of the separate uses. Alternative parking may be provided pursuant to Section 10.30.110 (Shared Parking).
   E.   Driveway Area not Counted. Any driveway area leading to a garage shall not be used to satisfy the off-street parking requirement for any required uncovered parking space.
   F.   Waiver or Modification for Public Utility Uses. The Director may waive and/or modify the off-street parking provisions, as set forth in this Chapter, for uses such as electrical power transformer stations, utility stations, and similar uses which have no employees working on the property, except employees required for periodic maintenance. Such decisions shall be documented in writing.
