A. Size of Off Street Parking Spaces for the purposes of this ordinance, one (1) parking space shall be a minimum of nine (9) feet in width and eighteen (18) feet in length, exclusive of access drives or aisles. Such parking space shall have a vertical clearance of at least seven (7) feet.
B. Width of Access Drives all off street parking areas shall be laid out with the following minimum aisle or access drive widths:
1. Ninety (90) degree (perpendicular) parking Twenty-five (25) feet (either one or two way circulation).
2. Sixty (60) degree (angle) parking Fifteen (15) feet (one-way circulation only).

When any combination of these types of parking is used (facing the same aisle) the most restricted aisle or access drive width requirements shall prevail). In addition, a two-foot overhang may be permitted on the external sides of a parking area. If the width of the parking space is increased (over 9 feet), the drive aisle width can be decreased proportionally (2 foot width in drive aisle per 1 foot increase in space width) except that a drive aisle for 2 way traffic may not be decreased below 20 feet in width and a drive aisle for 1 way traffic may not be decreased below 11 feet in width.
C. Access to Off Street Parking Spaces Each required parking space shall be connected with a deeded public right of way by means of aisles or access drives as required by SECTION 13.2(B). The parking area shall be so designed as to ensure that all maneuvering into and out of each parking space shall take place entirely within property lines of lots, garages and/or storage areas. All driveways are to be paved or asphalt.
D. Off Street Parking Areas in Multi Family, Commercial, or Industrial Zones All such parking areas shall have a protective wall and/or bumper blocks around the perimeter of said parking area and shall be so designed that all vehicles leaving the facility will be traveling forward to approaching traffic. All parking shall be effectively screened on each side adjoining or fronting on any property situated in a zone permitting single family residential development, by a solid wall, fence, or densely planted compact hedge as regulated by SECTION 9.16 of this ordinance. Ground cover shrubs and trees shall be located and maintained so as to not interfere with vehicular and pedestrian traffic on the property or with sign distance clearance at entrances and exits.
