(a) Vehicle accommodation areas that:
(1) Include lanes for drive-in windows, or,
(2) Contain parking areas that are required to have more than ten (10) parking spaces and that are used regularly at least five (5) days per week will be graded and surfaced with asphalt, concrete and other material that will provide equivalent protection against potholes, erosion, and dust. Specifications for surfaces shall meet the standard as set forth in the City’s Engineering Department Rules and Regulations.
(b) Vehicle accommodation areas that are not provided with the type of surface specified in subsection (a) of this section shall be graded and surfaced with crushed stone, gravel, or other suitable material to provide a surface that is stable and will help reduce dust and erosion. The perimeter of such parking areas shall be defined by bricks, stones, railroad ties, or other similar devices. In addition, whenever such a vehicle accommodation area abuts a paved street, the driveway leading from such street to such area (or, if there is no driveway, the portion of the vehicle accommodation area that opens onto such streets), shall be paved as provided in the City’s Engineering Department Rules and Regulations, for a distance of fifteen (15) feet back from the edge of the paved street or up to the property line which ever is the greater distance from the edge of the abutting street. This Subsection shall not apply to single-family or two-family dwellings or other uses that are required to have only one or two parking spaces.
(c) Parking spaces in areas surfaced in accordance with subsection (a) of this section shall be appropriately demarcated with painted lines or other markings. Parking spaces in areas surfaced in accordance with subsection (b) of this section shall be demarcated whenever practicable.
(d) Vehicle accommodation areas shall be properly maintained in all respects. In particular, and without limiting the foregoing, vehicle accommodation area surfaces shall be kept in good condition (free from potholes, etc.) and parking space lines or markings shall be kept clearly visible and distinct.
