§ 204.5.


In order to be classified as an accessory use, off-street parking and loading shall meet all of the following conditions:


Such parking or loading facilities shall be located on the same lot as the structure or use served by them. (For provisions concerning required parking on a separate lot as a principal or conditional use, see Sections 156, 159, 160 and 161 of this Code.)


Unless rented on a monthly basis to serve a dwelling unit pursuant to Section 204.5(b)(1), below, accessory parking facilities for any dwelling in any R District shall be limited, further, to storage of private passenger automobiles, private automobile trailers and boats, and trucks of a rated capacity not exceeding ¾ ton. Notwithstanding any provision of this Code to the contrary, the following shall be permitted as an accessory use:


Lease of lawfully existing off-street residential parking spaces by the property owner or manager, for a term of no less than one month, is permitted as follows:


for use by any resident of a dwelling unit located on a different lot within 1,250 feet of such parking space or


for use by any resident of a dwelling unit located on a different lot within the City and County of San Francisco so long as no more than five (5) spaces are rented to those who live beyond 1,250 feet of such parking space.


Accessory parking facilities shall include only those facilities which do not exceed the following amounts for a structure, lot or development: three spaces where one space is required by this Code; four spaces where two spaces are required by this Code; 150 percent of the required number of spaces where three or more spaces are required by this Code; and, in all districts other than NC, 15 spaces or seven percent of the total gross floor area of the structure or development, whichever is greater, or in NC Districts, three spaces, where no off-street parking spaces are required by this Code. For purposes of calculation under the last provision just stated, gross floor area shall be as defined by this Code, and the area considered to be devoted to parking shall be only the parking spaces and aisles, excluding entrance and exit driveways and ramps. Off-street parking facilities which exceed the amounts stated in this Subsection (c) shall be classified as either a principal or a conditional use, depending upon the use provisions applicable to the district in which such facilities are located. This subsection (c) does not apply to districts subject to Section 151.1, which establishes maximum amounts of accessory parking for all uses in those districts.
