§ 156.079  OFF-STREET PARKING.
   (A)   Required. Off-street automobile parking shall be provided on every lot on which a use is established.  If no parking space can be reasonably provided on the same lot, such space shall be provided on a lot of which a substantial portion is within 500 feet of such use.  No certificate of occupancy will be issued upon completion of any building or group of buildings unless all off-street parking requirements are in place and ready for use.
   (B)   Central Business District parking. Uses in the B-1, Central Business District, are exempt from parking requirements unless required by other provisions of this chapter.
   (C)   Combined parking. The required parking space for any number of separate uses may be combined in one lot, but the required space assigned to one use may not be assigned to another use at the same time, except that one-half (½) of the parking space required for churches, theaters, or assembly halls whose peak attendance will be at night or on Sundays may be assigned to a use which will be closed at night or on Sundays.
   (D)   Reduction in number of required spaces. As part of its review, the Town Board may reduce the required number of parking spaces required by this section by up to 10% upon finding that the reduced number of parking spaces will be sufficient to satisfy the demand for parking expected for the use, considering: the nature of the use, the number of trips generated by the use, the times of day when the use generates the most trips, and the extent to which other establishments are located on the same property and may reduce the number of vehicle trips required between different establishments.
   (E)   Size and number.  Each parking space shall be not less than nine feet by 19 feet, in or exclusive of adequate access drives and maneuvering space.  Each space shall be provided with vehicular access to a street or alley and shall be equal in number to at least the minimum requirement for the uses set out in Table 156.079(1).  Requirements based on the number of seats, students, etc., are based on the design capacity of the building.
