(A) Each parking space shall exclude aisles, maneuvering space, turnaround space, and drives. This precludes "tandem" parking; that is, parking arranged "back to back" where the access to one parking space is through another parking space, unless specifically allowed elsewhere in this chapter.
(B) All parking spaces shall be surfaced with a suitable paving material such as asphalt, concrete or specialty pavers (but not gravel or similar material), except those serving one and two family dwelling units, and other uses requiring or providing six or fewer parking spaces, which may instead be surfaced with other suitable material, as determined by the Zoning Administrator.
(C) Parking spaces 90 degrees to the travel way aisle shall not be less than nine feet in width and 18 feet in length; however, the paved length of the parking stall may be reduced to 17 feet, provided that curbing or anchored concrete wheel stops are furnished at the edge of paving to allow the vehicle to overhang the landscape area.
(D) Angled parking spaces positioned at other than 90 degrees to the aisle travel way, parallel parking spaces, and one-way travel aisles shall be dimensioned in accordance with recognized standard criteria.
(E) All two-way aisles shall be a minimum of 24 feet in width.
(F) Landscaped areas at ends of parking rows.
(1) The ends of parking rows shall be terminated in a landscaped area, outlined by curb and gutter or concrete wheel stops.
(2) Depth of termination area and height of landscaping shall be determined by preserving a sight triangle within the parking area formed by a long leg of 50 feet and a height of eye of 3-1/2 feet.
(3) Stop signs shall be provided at the transition from the parking area to the public right-of- way.
(4) The preceding landscape requirements shall apply only to surface parking lots and not to parking structures.
(G) For businesses that have drive-through access, parking spaces and travel aisles shall be arranged in a manner that provides sufficient stacking area from the public access driveway to prevent vehicles from backing up into the adjacent roadway.
