The driveway for a single or two-family dwelling shall be in conformance with § 151.1009(F) and Chapter 94 of the Montgomery Codified Ordinances. In all other cases, the location, width, and number of entrance and exit access drives to accessory parking spaces shall be in accordance with the following:
(A) Location. The location and width of entrance and exit driveways to parking facilities shall be planned to interfere as little as possible with the use of nearby property and with pedestrian and vehicular traffic on the nearest streets. Access driveways shall be located at least 50 feet from the right-of-way line of the nearest intersecting street and no less than ten feet from the side property line, unless there is a shared easement with the abutting property.
(B) Number of Drives.
(1) Each lot shall be permitted one two-way access drive per street frontage, or, upon review of the site plan, the Planning Commission and/or Council may permit a pair of one-way drives. Planning Commission and/or Council may permit an additional entrance on lots with a street frontage exceeding 250 feet.
(2) Entrances and exits shall be limited to two lanes, except where one driveway provides the sole access to the property and serves as both an entrance and exit, and then it shall be limited to three lanes.
(3) Width of Access Drives. The width of such entrance and exit lanes shall be not less than 12 feet or more than 15 feet per lane and shall not exceed a total of 40 feet.
(C) Radius. The radius of the edge of the access drive apron shall be at least 30 feet so that a vehicle may enter from or exit onto the curb lane without obstructing vehicles in other traffic lanes.
