§ 158.139  GUIDELINES; DOWNTOWN DISTRICT PARKING.
   (A)   “Downtown District” defined. For purposes of this section, DOWNTOWN DISTRICT shall mean the “Downtown District” zoning classification as established in this code, or such other districts as established for use or authorized in the Downtown Planning Sub-Area of the City Comprehensive Plan.
   (B)   Residential uses. No on-site vehicle parking shall be required for existing or re-developed second story dwelling units located within existing buildings in the Downtown District. For construction of a new building with more than two dwelling units, parking shall be provided on-site for the property at the rate of one and one-quarter spaces per dwelling unit (rounded up to the nearest whole number of spaces).
   (C)   Non-residential uses.
      (1)   Vehicle parking.
         (a)   In the Downtown District, the vehicle parking space number requirements of this subchapter for non-residential uses shall apply only to the net increase in floor area or use intensity created by new construction or building expansion. For any increase in parking required through new construction or expansion of existing non-residential buildings, the applicant must submit a parking study per this code to determine the number of parking spaces to be required on-site.
         (b)   Any existing vehicle parking spaces that are eliminated by new construction or expansion must be replaced by that business or use, unless such spaces are in excess of the total requirements for that business or use being served, and are in the same ownership.
      (2)   Loading. In the Downtown District, uses that prefer to provide loading from the street may have the option of applying for a permit for a curb loading zone as provided for by the city.
