Code Section: 144
Subject: Treatment of ground story on street frontages
Effective Date: 3/98 (Clerically revised 1/14)
This Interpretation replaces a previous interpretation (12/85).
This Section limits parking entrances for dwellings in certain districts at the building's front facade. Subject to the Residential Design Guidelines that require facades appropriate to the neighborhood's character, the treatment of ground story frontages shall apply to all public streets and alleys, but not private easements. Therefore, "through lots" must comply with this Section of the Code on both street and/or alley frontages.
