§ 157.

CONDITIONAL USE APPLICATIONS FOR PARKING EXCEEDING ACCESSORY AMOUNTS: ADDITIONAL CRITERIA

In considering any application for a conditional use for parking for a specific use or uses, where the amount of parking provided exceeds the amount classified as accessory parking in Section 204.5 of this Code, the City Planning Commission shall apply the following criteria in addition to those stated in Section 303(c) and elsewhere in this Code:

a.

Demonstration that trips to the use or uses to be served, and the apparent demand for additional parking, cannot be satisfied by the amount of parking classified by this Code as accessory, by transit service which exists or is likely to be provided in the foreseeable future, by car pool arrangements, by more efficient use of existing on-street and off-street parking available in the area, and by other means;

b.

Demonstration that the apparent demand for additional parking cannot be satisfied by the provision by the applicant of one or more car-share parking spaces in addition to those that may already be required by Section 166 of this Code.

c.

The absence of potential detrimental effects of the proposed parking upon the surrounding area, especially through unnecessary demolition of sound structures, contribution to traffic congestion, or disruption of or conflict with transit services;

d.

In the case of uses other than housing, limitation of the proposed parking to short-term occupancy by visitors rather than long-term occupancy by employees; and

e.

Availability of the proposed parking to the general public at times when such parking is not needed to serve the use or uses for which it is primarily intended.
