(a) Residential Districts and Uses. Accessory, enclosed or open parking facilities as required shall be provided on the same lot as the dwelling unit served. In RMD Districts, parking facilities shall be provided within a walking distance of 200 feet of the building entrance of the unit to be served, and at least one-half of the spaces required for each apartment building shall be provided in an enclosed garage. An enclosed surface shall contain no more than 12 parking spaces.
In one- and two-family residential districts, accessory and off-street parking facilities shall be provided in accordance with provisions of Section 1282.05. To preserve the intent of Residential Districts as prescribed in Section 1270.01(c), no vehicle or equipment used in commerce, including, but not limited to dump trucks, flatbed trucks, tow trucks, concrete trucks, tank trucks, semi-tractor trucks, stake body trucks, moving vans, buses, step vans, excavating equipment or other similar equipment or vehicles shall be permitted to be parked on any private property in residentially zoned districts unless they are in an enclosed structure.
However, the property owner or occupant may park one such vehicle outside of an enclosed structure if it meets all of the following criteria:
(1) The vehicle must be parked behind the front building line;
(2) The vehicle must be screened so it is not visible from any roadway; nor from any sidewalk; nor from any neighboring property;
(3) The vehicle is used solely by the occupant of the premises;
(4) Regular use of the vehicle customarily provides occupant transportation to and from place of employment and the vehicle is required as a condition of property owner's or occupant's employment.
Pick-up trucks and cargo vans required as a condition of employment which cannot be screened and/or enclosed must be parked in a designated driveway.
Whoever violates provisions of this Section 1282.08(a) is guilty of a fourth degree misdemeanor and shall be subject to a fine of not more than two hundred fifty dollars ($250.00) and may be imprisoned for not more than 30 days. Every day of a continuing violation shall be considered a separate offense.
(b) Civic Uses and Places of Assembly. Where churches, civic clubs, community centers, auditoriums, lodge halls, gymnasiums and stadiums share parking facilities with adjacent business establishments, such parking facilities shall be located within a walking distance of not more than 250 feet from the entrance of the main building of such use.
Parking serving the uses covered in this subsection shall be further regulated in relation to any adjoining Residential District lines as set forth in Chapter 1274.
(c) Business and Office Uses. Accessory parking facilities shall be provided on the same lot as the main use served in a General Business District, except where modified by the Planning Commission in accordance with the provisions of Section 1282.06. In such cases, the nearest point of the parking lot shall be located within a walking distance of not more than 250 feet from the main entrance of the building.
A parking area serving the uses covered in this subsection shall be further regulated in relation to any adjoining Residential District lines as set forth in Chapter 1276.
