§ 123-22 - Parking Lot Design.

Parking lots shall meet the following design requirements, in addition to any other applicable design requirements contained in this Chapter:

  1. Aisle Widths. Minimum aisle widths in parking lots shall be 18 feet for one-way aisles, and 24 feet for two-way aisles.
  2. All parking lots, loading areas and travel aisles shall be paved with bituminous concrete.
  3. Parking Space Dimensions. Minimum parking space sizes shall be nine feet wide by 18 feet long. Handicap parking spaces shall be 11 feet wide by 18 feet long and must adjoin a five-foot access aisle, which may be shared by adjoining handicap parking spaces.
  4. Traffic Control Islands. In any parking lot, no more than two travel aisles, one or two way, may run generally parallel to one another without separation by a raised, curbed traffic control island which runs parallel to and the full length of the aisles. Traffic control islands shall be a minimum of twelve feet in width. At the ends of each traffic control island there shall be 12 foot-wide raised islands that shall extend (on both sides, if parking rows are double) the full length of the parking stalls. The applicant, if desired, may shorten the main traffic control islands no more than 14 feet at each end to better allow for the removal of snow. If the main traffic control island is proposed to be shortened, pavement markings will be required to prohibit through-traffic. The Board may require additional traffic control islands to prevent or correct traffic safety problems. Curbing shall be granite.
  5. Traffic Circulation. The parking lot design shall be such that there is safe and adequate traffic circulation, and room to stack exiting vehicles separate from the entering traffic lane(s).
