17.112.030 Design standards.

     These standards are designed to accommodate automobiles and light trucks. They are not intended to satisfy land uses with special needs, such as parking for heavy trucks, vans and motor homes. The handicapped parking standards herein are for local zoning compliance and are not intended to supersede more restrictive Federal or State requirements, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act.
     A. All standard-size vehicle off-street parking spaces shall be a minimum nine (9) feet in width and a minimum of eighteen (18) feet in depth.
     B. Compact car off-street parking space may account for up to thirty (30) percent of the required parking spaces, provided the spaces are permanently designated by sign(s) as being for use by compact cars only. As examples, a required off-street parking area of ninety (90) spaces may have up to twenty-seven (27) compact car spaces, and a required area of one hundred sixty-two (162) spaces may have up to forty-eighty (48) compact car spaces.
     All compact car parking spaces shall be a minimum eight feet by six inches (8'6")in width and a minimum of sixteen (16) feet in depth.
     For the purpose of this Chapter, a compact car shall be a vehicle which has a maximum wheel base of one hundred six (106) inches.
     C. All parking facilities shall comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines for Facilities and Buildings (ADAAG) (28 CFR Part 36, Public Law 101-336).

    For outpatient medical offices and treatment facilities, ten (10) percent of the total spaces shall be handicap accessible.
    At units or facilities that specialize in treatment or services for persons with mobility impairments, twenty (20) percent of the total number of spaces shall be accessible.
    As examples, a required off-street parking area of ninety (90) spaces shall have a minimum of four (4) handicapped spaces (one of which shall be "van-accessible" per Chapter 17.112.030(C)(4) with the remaining eighty-six (86) spaces being standard and compact car-size spaces; and a required area of four hundred four (404) spaces shall have a minimum of nine (9) handicap spaces (two of which shall be "van-accessible" per subsection (C)(4) below) with the remaining three hundred ninety-five (395) spaces being standard and compact car-size spaces.
     2. Minimum handicapped parking space dimensions shall be as follows (dimension units are in inches):

     3. Parking Spaces. Accessible parking spaces shall be at least ninety-six (96) inches (2,440 mm) wide. Parking access aisles shall be part of an accessible route to the building or facility entrance and shall comply with ADAAG accessible route requirements. Two accessible parking spaces may share a common access aisle. Parked vehicle overhangs shall not reduce the clear width of an accessible route. Parking spaces and access aisles shall be level with surface slopes not exceeding 1:50 (two percent) in all directions.
     4. Van Spaces. One in every eight accessible spaces, but not less than one, shall be served by an access aisle ninety-six (96) inches (2,440 mm) wide minimum and shall be designated "van-accessible" by an additional sign mounted below the symbol of accessibility (see Section 17.112.050(D)). The vertical clearance for such spaces shall comply with Section 17.112.050(E). All such spaces may be grouped on one level of a parking structure.
