§ 162.

TOUR BUS LOADING SPACES IN C-3 DISTRICTS

a.

Off-street tour bus loading spaces shall be provided for hotel uses in C-3 districts in the minimum quantities as follows:



Number ofHotel Rooms Number of Off-Street LoadingSpaces Required
0 – 200 0
201 – 350 1
Each additional 300 rooms 1 Additional

The dimensions for each space shall be a minimum of 45 feet by nine feet with a minimum vertical clearance of 14 feet. If more than one space is required there shall also be a bypass through lane.

b.

In recognition of the fact that site constraints in C-3 Districts may make provision of the required number of tour bus loading spaces impractical, a reduction in or waiver of the provision of such spaces in C-3 Districts may be permitted, in accordance with the provisions of Section 309 of this Code. In considering any such reduction or waiver, the following criteria shall be considered:

1.

The site size is not large enough to permit a configuration of spaces that could satisfy the requirements of Subsection (a);

2.

Provision of the required number and/or size of spaces would result in the use of an unreasonable percentage of ground floor area and thereby preclude more desirable use of the ground floor for retail, pedestrian circulation or open space uses;

3.

Spaces for tour bus loading can be provided at adjacent curbs or in the immediate vicinity without adverse effect on pedestrian circulation, transit operations or general traffic circulation.
