10-22-6: SPECIAL PARKING AND LANDSCAPE CORRIDOR DISTRICTS AND SPACES REQUIRED:
   A.   Special Parking/Landscape Corridor Overlay District(s): Provision for special parking and landscape corridor overlay districts is hereby established in order to accommodate the need for off street parking ratio and parking and landscape strip design alternatives in specific City areas above and beyond what is normally allowed. Origination of such areas results from various causes including: legal nonconformities in landscape strip, parking area, service drive, landscape area and even setback areas introduced by the City or State doing street improvements (including widening), implementation of special plan studies, enactment of local improvement districts, and so forth.
The following regulations, in addition to the general regulations of this chapter, shall apply to all land classified as being and sited in a P District. If any of the parking or chapter 33 of this title landscape corridor regulations specified in this title differ from the corresponding provisions of this section, the regulations of this section shall govern. (Ord. 3805, 7-21-2008)
      1.   Nampa/Caldwell Boulevard Special Parking/Landscape Corridor District (P-1):
         a.   Boundaries: The boundary of the P-1 District is described as follows:
Commencing at the intersection of N. Canyon Street and the Nampa/Caldwell Boulevard on the northwest corner of that intersection and thence northwesterly along the center line of the Nampa/Caldwell Boulevard to the intersection of the Nampa/Caldwell Boulevard and W. Karcher Road then back easterly along the northernmost and rear property lines of each and every lot or parcel having immediate frontage along the Nampa/Caldwell Boulevard to N. Canyon Street then southerly to the intersection of the Nampa/Caldwell Boulevard and N. Canyon Street, point of beginning.
         b.   Requirements Of The P-1 District: Landscape corridor provision, parking layout/design, parking setback and provision of spaces shall adhere to requirements set forth in section 10-1-18, figure 1 of this title, this section, and section 10-33-4 of this title. Expansion of site/structural improvements or property redevelopment/new construction that would normally require updating of site improvements in accordance with section 10-1-6 of this title shall still be therein required. Exceptions to such standards, where necessitated because of the property being legally nonconforming, may be allowed without requiring a variance. Structures destroyed by fire or other calamity may be rebuilt within the same footprint as previously occupied by the same but are exempt from having to update site improvements at that time to establish parking in accordance with this chapter. Those properties within the P-1 District whereupon an existing structure is located at or within thirty feet (30') from the back of the sidewalk shall be allowed access off of, and onto, the Nampa/Caldwell Boulevard at any point along their property frontage abutting the same. Thus, drive accesses in such situations may be as wide as the property's frontage.
         c.   Federal ADA Restrictions: The provisions of this section shall not be construed as abrogation of Federal ADA regulations. Such shall still be applicable provided that emplacement of handicap parking spaces and signage will not be enforced by the City in the P-1 Zone. (Ord. 3636, 11-6-2006)
      2.   Garrity Boulevard Special Parking/Landscape Corridor District (P-2):

Structures destroyed by fire or other calamity may be rebuilt within the same footprint as previously occupied by the same but are exempt from having to update site improvements at that time to establish parking in accordance with this chapter; and,
            (3)   Private properties within the P-2 District that have frontage abutting Garrity shall install but four feet (4') of landscaping along Garrity when such is required to be emplaced instead of twenty feet (20') or other metric as determined by a zone. (Ord. 4428, 4-15-2019)
