Body
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:  This ordinance will allow non-accessory parking facilities as a conditional use in residential districts, subject to new supplemental regulations.  This means that stand alone parking lots may be allowed in residential districts other than TR-R and TR-P.  Under the regulations, parking would be limited to automobiles, motorcycles, and bicycles in clearly marked spaces and the Plan Commission could place limits on the number of parked vehicles and the ultimate duration of the use.  Such parking facilities have been approved as recently as 2012 under the old code and the Planning Department believes the new code should provide some flexibility for approving them now.
