§ 154.064  PARKING AREA DESIGN CRITERIA.
   (A)   Wherever an off-street parking area is designed to provide parking of vehicles in six rows or more, interior landscaped curbed areas shall be provided the length of the parking rows in order to prevent cross traffic flow and traffic hazards. Parking rows shall be no greater than 200 feet in length without providing cross drives. For parking areas associated with high-density commercial or industrial activity, green areas between rows shall be not less than eight feet in width.
   (B)   Off-street parking areas shall be designed so that there is an unrestricted flow and circulation of traffic within and in and out of the area. Traffic lanes shall be clearly marked on the paved surface to show flow of traffic. All areas shall be designed for head-in parking only. The following table shall govern the minimum width of traffic lanes within the parking area:
 
Minimum Width of Lanes
Angle of Parking (degrees)
One-Way (feet)
Two-Way (feet)
0 (parallel to curb)
16
24
90 (perpendicular to curb)
24
28
No parking allowed
16
24
 
   (C)   Parking areas that terminate in a dead end shall be provided with culs-de-sac not less than 80 feet in diameter. All parking areas will be provided with landscaped areas at the ends of each row.
   (D)   Perimeter and interior landscaped areas shall be protected from vehicular encroachment by the use of curbing. When curbing is used as a wheel stop for head-in parking, the 20-foot dimension of the parking space requirement (11 by 20 feet) may be reduced to 18 feet. Curbing dimensions for the landscaped area shall conform to the standard (not the Miami-type curb) curb specifications established by the town. The overhang area of two feet in width shall be paved or covered with concrete. Because of safety reasons, individual wheel stops protruding from the pavement are prohibited.
