§ 159.142  REQUIRED OFF-STREET PARKING STANDARDS.
(A)   Computing Number of Required Spaces.  In determining the minimum required number of off-street parking or loading spaces, the following instructions shall be applicable in such computations:
(1)   Determining Floor Area.  Off-street parking requirements shall be calculated based on gross square footage of the use to which the parking is accessory, or as otherwise provided in Table 8.
(2)   Fractions.  If the calculation of required parking spaces results in a fraction, said fraction shall be considered as being the next unit and shall be counted as requiring one space.
(3)   Public Assembly Seating.  In sports arenas, churches, and other places of assembly in which patrons occupy benches, pews, or other similar seating facilities, each 24 inches of such seating shall be counted as one seat for the purpose of determining requirements thereunder.
(4)   Calculating Required Parking For Bar and Restaurant Combinations.  For bars and nightclubs which serve food and for restaurants which include a bar, required parking shall be calculated according to Table 8.  Since bars and restaurants require different parking, this table allows parking to be calculated accurately based on how much of the use is a bar and how much is a restaurant.  This table is based on the premise that a restaurant requires greater kitchen space than a bar.

 Table 8Calculating Parking for Bars and Restaurant Combinations % of Gross Floor Area Devoted to Kitchen % of Public Floor Area Calculated as "Restaurant" % of Public Floor Area Calculated as "Bar" 40% or more 100% 0% 30 - 39% 75% 25% 20 - 29% 50% 50% 5 - 19% 25% 75% less than 5% 0% 100%

To use the table determine the gross square footage of the kitchen area and divide that number by the gross square footage of the building in which it is located.  The resulting number may be converted to a percentage.  Reference that percentage in the first column of the table, and follow the row across.  If, for example, the percentage of the kitchen area is 25%, then 50% of the public floor area in the building is calculated as a bar and 50% as a restaurant.  Reference Table 9 to determine the required parking ratio for each use.
(5)   Determining Parking Requirements for Unlisted Uses.  For uses not specified in Table 9, the number of parking spaces shall be determined by the Director of Planning and Development, on the basis of requirements for similar uses, the gross square footage of the use, and the relationship between the size of the use and the number of persons served or employed.
(6)   Additional Parking Spaces above the Required Number as per the following Tables. Additional parking above the required number shall be increased by a maximum of 10% and be constructed using pervious concrete, permeable pavers, or other similar materials. Plans shall also incorporate an additional 2% of interior parking lot landscaping above the required percentage per Table 12.0.5.C.1. entitled 'Interior Parking Lot Landscape Requirement'. Low Impact Development (LID) landscaping standards and techniques shall be implemented.
