(B) Each parking space shall be accessible from a street or alley through aisles and/or driveways, except that tandem parking arrangements are permitted for single-family, two-family and manufactured home residential uses.

Dead-end aisles are not permitted for parking spaces with angles greater than zero degrees and less than ninety 90 unless adequate turnarounds are provided. All circulation and maneuvering of vehicles shall occur without encroaching any right-of-way or adjacent property, except in the case of joint parking facilities.
(D) All parking spaces shall be clearly marked on the pavement with yellow or white traffic paint, curbs, or raised pavement markers approved by the city. Traffic control signs or other pavement markings shall be used as necessary to ensure safe and efficient traffic operation. The provisions of this paragraph shall not apply to a single-family dwelling.
(E) Placement, signing, and markings for fire zones shall be approved by the city's Building Official.
(F) A parking lot shall be designed to physically prevent any portion of a vehicle from encroaching or overhanging any public right-of-way line or private property line through the installation of a permanent curb, wall, or other physical barrier.
