A.

The required minimum street
from a
that is designated a major
or route on the MS&R Map shall be the same as the
for the base
in accordance with Section 6.3.4, Dimensional Standard and Exceptions Tables, and other related sections if the is not a designated on the MS&R Map. Along a that is designated a , the required is regulated in accordance with Section 5.3.4.A,
Buffer Area.

B. Adjustment

An adjustment to the amount of required
for nonresidential
is permitted to compensate for the setting aside of property for eventual use as part of an MS&R improvement in accordance with Section 5.4.5.F. The amount of adjustment depends on the individual situation. To determine the amount, an adjustment factor is applied and calculated as provided below.

C. Applying Adjustment Factor

The adjustment factor (percentage) is utilized to accomplish one of the following:

1. To lower the ratio of required
spaces to the square footage of use;

2. To increase the square footage of use for the amount of
provided; or,

3. To increase the seating capacity of a use for the amount of
provided.

EXAMPLE 1: Application of Adjustment Factor
• Required Parking Ratio: One space for every 200 square feet of
.
• Adjustment Factor: 11.2 percent. (Refer to Section 5.4.6.C)
• Proposed
Square Footage: 30,440 square feet. Application 1. Adjustment to the Parking Ratio. If the adjustment factor is applied to the parking ratio, then the ratio (200) is multiplied by the adjustment factor (0.112). The result (22.4) is added to the normally required ratio (200) to provide the new adjusted ratio (222.4) that would be applicable. Application 2. Adjustment to
Size. If the adjustment factor (11.2%) is applied to the (30,440), first the parking would be calculated on the 30,440 square feet that, at one space per 200 square feet, would equal 152 parking spaces that shall be provided. Then, the 30,440 square feet is multiplied by the adjustment factor (0.112). The result (3,409) is then added to 30,440 square feet to provide a total square footage of 33,849 that could be placed on the property. Application 3. Adjustment to Seating Capacity. To apply the adjustment factor in a situation where the required is calculated by the number of seats, such as one space for every five seats, the adjustment factor (0.112) is multiplied by the number of seats (5). The result (0.56) is added to the number of seats (5) to provide the new adjusted ratio of one space for every 5.56 seats that would be applicable. |

D. Calculation of Adjustment Factor

1. The adjustment on each
is based on the amount (by percentage) of
that is within the
(A). This adjustment factor is calculated by dividing that area (A) by the gross
that includes area A. The adjustment factor is calculated to the nearest thousandth as shown below. (See Figure 5.4-C.)

Formula: A
÷
(A + B) = Adjustment factor

Where:

A =
within MS&R

B =
outside the MS&R

A + B =
or gross

EXAMPLE 2: Utilization of Formula A = 15,000 square feet B = 75,000 square feet A ÷ (A + B) = Adjustment factor (percentage) 15,000 ÷ (15,000 + 75,000) = Adjustment factor 15,000 ÷90,000 = Adjustment factor .167 = 16.7% = Adjustment factor EXAMPLE 3. Adjustment Utilizing Section 5.4.5.H.1.d. If area A were to the , then area A would be allowed to count at one and one-fourth its size in the adjustment calculation as provided in Section 5.4.5.D.1.d. For example, utilizing the conditions in Example 1, where A is equal to 15,000 square feet utilizing the provision of Section 5.4.5.D.1.d, area A would now be equal to 18,750 square feet (15,000 multiplied by 1.25). The calculation would be as follows with B = 75,000 square feet: A ÷ (A + B) = Adjustment factor 18,750 ÷ (18,750 + 75,000) = Adjustment factor 18,750 ÷ 93,750 = Adjustment factor 0.20 = 20% = Adjustment factor |
