All off-street parking shall be located in conformity with the following requirements.
   (A)   For dwellings.
      (1)   Parking spaces accessory to dwellings located in any residential zoning district shall be located on the same lot as the dwelling. Such parking spaces shall not be located in any front yard except in the driveway, but may be located in the side or rear yards. Each parking space accessory to a multi-family dwelling shall be unobstructed so that no vehicle need be moved in order to allow another vehicle to enter/exit the parking area.
      (2)   All parking spaces accessory to permitted non-dwelling uses located in the residential zoning district generally shall be located on the same lot as the use served. However, by special use permit, such parking facilities may be located on another parcel within 200 feet of the use served. No commercial vehicle exceeding one ton cargo capacity shall be parked anywhere in a residential district (except for normal loading, unloading and service call), unless a special use permit has been obtained. No vehicle repair work shall be permitted on any parking lot located in any residential district.
   (B)   Business and industrial districts.
      (1)   Parking spaces accessory to any dwelling located in any business district shall be located within 200 feet of the dwelling. Parking spaces accessory to any other conforming use located in any business or industrial district shall be located within 500 feet of the use served.
      (2)   No parking space accessory to any use located in business or industrial district shall be located in any residential district except by special use permit; and in no case shall any such parking areas extend more than 500 feet into a residential district.
      (3)   In any business or industrial district, off-street parking facilities for different buildings or uses may be provided collectively if the total number of spaces so located together is not less than the sum of the separate requirements for each use, and if all regulations governing location of parking spaces in relation to the use served are observed.
