22.17 Fee-in-Lieu of Parking [Reserved/To Be Determined]

[NOTE: At this point, we have not designated areas where this is applicable. However, this would be limited to non-residential uses in non-residential districts.]

A.  A reduction in the required number of off-street parking spaces for non-residential uses in ______ Districts may be granted by the City Planning Commission conditioned upon payment, by the owner, of a fee-in-lieu of providing the required parking spaces, such fee established from time to time by resolution of the City Council. Such payment shall be placed into a City fund to be used by the City for the acquisition, construction and maintenance of public off-street parking facilities to serve that area.

B.  Upon payment, the property granted the modification in the number of required off-street spaces shall be credited permanently by ordinance with the number of spaces for which payment was received by the City.

C.  The parking fee-in-lieu of provision is only applicable for new construction or where additional floor area in excess of five-hundred (500) square feet is added to an existing building. Changes in use within existing buildings do not require payment of a fee-in-lieu.
