§ 151.3207  SPECIFIC STANDARDS FOR THE OLD MONTGOMERY DISTRICT.
   (A)   No off-street parking shall be permitted between the established building setback and the public right-of-way.
   (B)   In recognition of the historic, compact character of buildings in the Old Montgomery District, as well as the less efficient use of the floor area of those buildings, the number of off-street parking spaces for each facility or use in the Old Montgomery District shall be determined according to the following:
      (1)   The number of off-street parking spaces shall be 50% of the standards set forth in § 151.3204.
      (2)   However, due to unique building and site characteristics that may be present in the Old Montgomery District, the Planning Commission and/or Council may approve a development plan with fewer parking spaces than 50% of the requirements set forth in § 151.3204. In order for the Planning Commission to consider a reduction of the required spaces, the applicant must demonstrate that such a reduction is warranted based on the following criteria.
         (a)   The character of the proposed use, the design of the building and the ability of the proposed use to reinforce the main street environment;
         (b)   The availability and accessibility of public parking spaces, both on-street and within public parking lots to meet the needs of the development;
         (c)   The availability of parking areas on adjacent sites, considering the hours of operation of the proposed use compared to adjacent uses to meet the needs of the development; and
         (d)   The potential negative impact to the character of the district if the requisite number of parking spaces is provided.
