“The proposed text amendment would revise the current vehicle parking exemption for Pre-Existing Small Zone Lots, which are defined as zone lots less than or equal to 6,250 square feet and zoned Mixed Use Commercial that existed on June 25, 2010. The current Pre-Existing Small Lot provisions allow a full exemption from vehicle parking on all these lots.
The proposed text amendment would exempt the first three stories of development from required vehicle parking when within proximity to high-frequency bus or rail transit. For zone lots not within proximity to high-frequency bus or rail transit, the first two stories of development would be exempt from required vehicle parking. Under the proposal, all other stories in these buildings would be required to provide vehicle parking with the possibility to utilize vehicle parking reductions and alternative ratios available in the DZC. Additionally, existing buildings on Small Zone Lots would be exempt from providing vehicle parking.”
