(A) General. Except as otherwise expressly stated in this zoning ordinance, required off-street parking spaces must be located on the same lot as the building or use they are required to serve.
(B) Off-site parking.
(1) General. All or a portion of required off-street parking for nonresidential uses may be provided off-site, in accordance with the provisions of this section. Required accessible parking spaces may not be located off-site.
(2) Location. Off-site parking areas must be located within a 600-foot radius of the use served by such parking, measured between the entrance of the use to be served and the outer perimeter of the furthest parking space within the off-site parking lot.
(3) Control of off-site parking area.
(a) The property to be occupied by the off-site parking facilities must be under the same ownership as the lot containing the use to be served by the parking. The off-site parking area may be under separate ownership only if a legal agreement is provided to the Zoning Administrator guaranteeing the long-term availability of the parking. The agreement must be in a form approved by the state's attorney and recorded with the county recorder of deeds.
(b) Off-site parking agreements are binding upon applicants, their successors and assigns. Amendments to off-site parking agreements require Zoning Administrator approval, based on whether the proposed amendment complies with all applicable zoning ordinance provisions.
(c) Off-site parking privileges remain in effect only as long as the agreement, binding on all parties, remains in force. If an off-site parking agreement lapses or is no longer valid, then parking must be provided as otherwise required by this article.
(C) Parking in setbacks and yard areas. In residential districts, parking is prohibited in street setbacks, except that parking spaces for residential uses may be located on a driveway leading to a garage or other allowed off-street parking area. In all other districts, parking spaces may be located in street setbacks unless otherwise expressly stated.
(D) Limit on number of vehicles parked in residential districts. No more than five vehicles owned or controlled by the owner or occupant of the subject property may be parked outside of an enclosed building in A-2, E-1, E-2, R-1, R-2, R-2A, R-3, R-4 and R-5 zoning districts. All vehicles parked outside of an enclosed building in these districts must be parked on a regularly constructed residential driveway.
