Chapter 8.76
OFF-STREET PARKING AND LOADING REGULATIONS

8.76.010 Purpose and Intent.

The purpose and intent of the requirements for off-street parking established by this Chapter are to minimize traffic congestion and hazards to motorists and pedestrians, to provide safe, attractive, and convenient off-street parking facilities with vehicular access to all land uses, to provide off-street parking in proportion to the needs generated by varying land uses, to ensure access to projects by emergency response vehicles, and to ensure that parking areas are compatible with the surrounding land uses.

8.76.020 Applicability.

Every use hereafter commenced, every private parking facility or garage, and every building or structure hereafter erected or altered, shall have permanently maintained off-street parking facilities and vehicular loading spaces, as required by the provisions of this Chapter. These regulations do not apply to parking garages and facilities of governmental agencies. Rev. Ord. 28-99 (12/21/99)

8.76.030 Maintenance.

It shall be unlawful for any person, owning, leasing or controlling a building or structure to fail, neglect or refuse to provide and maintain adequate parking facilities as hereinafter provided.

8.76.040 General Regulations.

A.    Changes in Use. When an existing use is enlarged, increased or intensified, or a new use having a greater parking requirement than the previous use is proposed, the required number of parking spaces for the new use or existing, enlarged, increased or intensified use shall be calculated and provided as specified by Section 8.76.080.

B.    Continuing Obligation. The maintenance of the parking and loading spaces required shall be a continuing obligation of the owner of the property upon which the building or structure is located as long as the building or structure exists and the use requiring such space continues. It shall be unlawful for an owner of a building or structure affected by these requirements to discontinue, change or dispense with or to cause the discontinuance, sale or transfer of such building or structure, without establishing alternative spaces which conform to those requirements; or for any person, firm, or corporation to use such building or structure without providing such required parking or loading spaces, in compliance with these regulations.

C.    Cross Access Encouraged. Applicants for commercial and industrial developments should be encouraged to provide cross-access to adjacent non-residential properties for convenience, safety and efficient circulation of motor vehicles. A Mutual Access Agreement shall be executed where cross-access is provided.

D.    Gross Floor Area. The computation of he number of parking spaces required for a structure or use is based on the gross floor area of the structure or use the parking serves.

E.    Guest Parking. Required guest parking in residential zoning districts shall be so designated and restricted for the use of guests.

F.    Maintenance. All parking and storage areas shall be maintained so that the pavement is structurally sound, clean and free of dust, mud or trash and striped to City standards. All pavement repair, striping, reconstruction, or restoration work shall be done in accordance with City standards.

G.    Multiple-Use Projects. Where a project contains more than one use type (and typically multiple tenant spaces) such as offices, restaurants, and retail sales, the amount of parking to be provided shall be the total of that required by Section 8.76.080, Parking Requirements by Use Type, for each use type, except as otherwise provided by Section 8.76.050 below, Adjustment to the Number of Parking Spaces.

H.    New Buildings or Development Projects Without Known Tenants. If the type of tenants that will occupy a non-residential building are not known at the time of the development entitlement or building permit approval, the amount of parking to be provided shall be the minimum number of parking spaces required by Section 8.76.080 for a mix of use types typical of comparable buildings or development projects in that zoning district as determined by the Director of Community Development. The intent of this section is to ensure sufficient parking by anticipating a typical use type mix which is appropriate to the design and nature of the building or development project.

I.    No Double Counting of Parking and Loading Spaces. No area may be utilized and counted both as a required parking space and a required loading space.

J.    Off-Street Parking and Loading Plan Required. All uses which require a building permit, site development review or conditional use permit shall be accompanied by an Off-Street Parking and Loading Plan unless waived by the Director. The contents of the Off-Street Parking and Loading Plan shall be to the satisfaction of the Director of Community Development. The Off-Street Parking and Loading Plan may be incorporated into the Site Plan for the Site Development Review or Conditional Use Permit. No building permit, site development review or conditional use permit will be approved unless its Off-Street Parking and Loading Plan complies with the requirements of this Chapter.

K.    Rounding. Where the number of required parking spaces results in a fraction of 0.50 or higher, the requirements shall be rounded up to the next whole space.

L.    Tenant Spaces With Accessory Storage. When a tenant has enclosed accessory storage in excess of 2,000 square feet, the required parking for that portion of the tenant space dedicated to storage shall be calculated as specified by Section 8.76.080 for the Warehousing and Distribution use type which is one parking space per 1,000 square feet of warehousing area. The required parking for the remainder of the tenant space shall be calculated as specified in Section 8.76.080 for the primary use.

M.    Tenant Space With Multiple Functions. When a tenant space contains several Use Types, the amount of parking to be provided shall be the total of that required by Section 8.76.080 for each Use Type, except as otherwise provided by Section 8.76.050 (Adjustment to the Number of Parking Spaces), and except as follows:

1.    When a tenant space contains several Use Types for the exclusive use of those engaged in the primary use and not otherwise available to the general public, the amount of parking to be provided shall be the total of that required by Section 8.76.080 for the primary Use Type.

2.    When a tenant space contains permitted accessory uses pursuant to Section 8.40.030 (Accessory Uses), additional parking shall not be required.

N.    Use. The word “use” shall mean both type and intensity of the use, and that a change in use shall be subject to all of the requirements of this Chapter.

O.    Uses Not Listed. Requirements for uses not specifically listed herein shall be determined by the Director of Community Development, based upon the requirements for comparable uses and upon the particular characteristics of the use. Additional parking for specific uses may also be required upon determination by the Director of Community Development and the Planning Commission. Rev. Ord. 12-11 (October 2011)

8.76.050 Adjustment to the Number of Parking Spaces

A.    Compact Car Space Substitution. Parking lots with 20 or more spaces may substitute compact car spaces for up to 35 percent of the total spaces required. Each compact space shall be labeled “Compact” or “C”.

B.    Motorcycle Space Substitution. Parking lots with 40 or more spaces may replace regular spaces with motorcycle spaces. One regular space may be replaced for each 40 required spaces. Motorcycle spaces shall be a minimum size of 3 by 6 feet.

C.    Off-Site Parking. Where required parking for a use type cannot be feasibly provided on the same site as an approved use, the Zoning Administrator may allow the required parking to be located on an adjacent parcel pursuant to a Conditional Use Permit subject to all of the following requirements:

1.    Conditional Use Permit Findings can be made.

2.    The most distant parking space from a non-residential use type is not more than 400 feet from the use and the most distant parking space from a residential use type is not more than 150 feet from the use.

3.    Additional documents, covenants, deed restrictions, or other agreements as may be deemed necessary by the Director of Community Development are executed to assure that the required parking spaces are provided to the principal use for the life of the documents, covenants, deed restrictions, or other agreements.

4.    The parking lot site is not located in a residential zone unless the principal use requiring the parking is also allowed in a residential zone.

5.    The parking lot site is not within a road easement or private street.

D.    Parking Exception.

1.    Unusual Design Situations. The Director of Community Development may grant a Parking Exception of up to 10% of the required parking spaces when necessary due to unusual design situations. A study shall be prepared by a traffic engineer addressing the request for a Parking Exception. Any approval of a Parking Exception shall be subject to the approval of that study by the Community Development Director.

2.    Trash Enclosures. The Director of Community Development may grant a Parking Exception for a reduction in the number of required parking spaces when a reduction is necessary as a result of the construction of a new trash enclosure or the modification of an existing trash enclosure in compliance with Dublin Municipal Code Chapter 7.98 (Solid Waste and Recycling Enclosure Standards). The Parking Exception shall be limited to the number of required parking spaces that are lost due to the construction of a new or modification of an existing trash enclosure but in no case shall exceed 10% of the required parking.

E.    Parking Reductions For An Individual Use. When a reduction of off-street parking is proposed because an applicant for a proposed use believes the number of parking spaces required for their use as specified in Section 8.76.080 is not applicable, because the use would function differently than the generic use type and associated parking standards established in this Chapter, the Zoning Administrator may grant a reduction in off-street parking requirements pursuant to Chapter 8.100, Conditional Use Permit, if:

1.    Conditional Use Permit Findings can be made.

2.    The Applicant submits a parking study prepared by a qualified consultant analyzing the parking demands of the proposed use and the parking demands of similar uses in similar situations, demonstrating that the required parking standards are excessive, and proposing alternate parking standards which are appropriate and ensure that there will not be a parking deficiency.

3.    Overflow parking will not impact any adjacent use.

F.    Parking Reductions for Shared Parking. When shared off-street parking is proposed between two or more adjacent use types, the Community Development Director may grant a reduction in off-street parking requirements (from the sum of the parking required by each use type) in compliance with Chapter 8.102, Minor Use Permit. Reductions for shared parking may be granted if the Community Development Director finds each of the following standards are met:

1.    The Minor Use Permit findings can be made.

2.    A sufficient number of spaces are provided to meet the greatest parking demands of the participating use types and to ensure that there will not be a parking deficiency.

3.    Satisfactory evidence is provided that the use types, by their natures and operating times, will not conflict with each other.

4.    Overflow parking will not adversely affect any adjacent use.

5.    Additional documents, covenants, deed restrictions, or other agreements as may be deemed necessary by the Community Development Director are executed to assure that the required parking spaces provided are maintained and that uses with similar hours and parking requirements as those uses sharing the parking facilities remain for the life of the documents, covenants, deed restrictions, or other agreements.

G.    Parking Variance. Except as otherwise provided in this Chapter, a Variance shall be obtained to allow deviations from provisions of this Chapter which govern Parking Requirements by Use Type (Section 8.76.080), and Loading Requirements (Section 8.76.090). A parking variance shall be processed in accordance with Chapter 8.112, Variance. Rev. Ord. 6-13 (November 2013); Ord. 16-10 (August 2010); Ord. 15-09 (November 2009)

8.76.060 Special Regulations

A.    Accessibility and Usability. All required off-street parking spaces shall be designed, located, constructed and maintained so as to be fully and independently usable and accessible at all times, except when the closure of such parking areas is authorized for the securing of the property in question or for public safety purposes. The usability of required parking spaces shall be maintained as follows:

1.    Required off-street parking spaces and driveways shall not be used for any purpose that at any time would preclude the parking or maneuvering of motor vehicles.

2.    No owner or tenant shall lease, rent, or otherwise make a parking space required by this Chapter unavailable to the intended users of the parking space.

The Zoning Administrator may approve a Conditional Use Permit to allow for an RV greater than 25 feet in length on lots with a front yard setback of 20-feet or less or to allow for an RV longer than Area 5b for lots with a front yard setback of more than 20-feet (See Figure 76-0), provided that the rear yard will be screened from view from the public right of way and provided that the findings required by Section 8.76.060.E.4 and 8.100.060 can be made.

Figure 76-0

F.    Parking within a designated parking space. All vehicles shall be parked within the confines of parking spaces as striped on the ground and as shown on an approved Off-Street Parking and Loading Plan.

G.    Living or sleeping in vehicle parked upon any public right of way. At no time shall a Motorhome, recreational vehicle, mobile home or similar vehicle as determined by the Director of Community Development, parked upon any public right-of-way in any zoning district be occupied for living or sleeping purposes.

H.    Living or sleeping in vehicle parked or stored on a lot. At no time shall a motor home, recreational vehicle, utility trailer, mounted or un-mounted camper top, boat or other similar vehicle as determined by the Director of Community Development parked or stored on a lot be occupied for living, sleeping, or any other purposes except as permitted by a Temporary Use Permit or adjacent to a fireworks sales booth or as legally allowed in a bonafide trailer park, mobile home park, or recreational vehicle park.

I.    Parking of unregistered or inoperable (“Non-Op”) vehicles prohibited. No unregistered or inoperable vehicle shall be parked or stored in any zoning district unless otherwise permitted by a Conditional Use Permit or if legitimately stored while being actively repaired (not stored more than four weeks) by a permitted repair facility (non-residential zoning districts only) Vehicles registered with the Department of Motor Vehicles as “Non-Op” are not considered to be registered vehicles for the purpose of this Ordinance.

J.    Repair or Dismantling of a Parked Vehicle. No vehicle shall be parked in the Front Setback, area in front of a residence but behind the Front Setback, Street Side Setback in front of a fence, a Side Setback visible from the street, or driveway for the purpose of repair or dismantling. “Repair” shall mean brake repair, engine or transmission repair or replacement, the replacement of parts under the hood of a vehicle (with the exception of fluids, batteries, and filters), and the replacement of parts under the vehicle. Rev. Ord. 5-15 (August 2015)

K.    Re-striping of Parking Lots. Parking lots are periodically resurfaced and re-striped. In order to ensure that parking lots retain the same parking space sizes and locations, and the same circulation locations and dimensions, all parking lots shall be re-striped pursuant to a Site Development Review Waiver.

L.    Tandem Parking.

1.    Commercial and Industrial Uses. The Zoning Administrator may approve an off-street parking program by means of a Conditional Use Permit utilizing limited tandem (front to back) parking for commercial and industrial uses under unusual design constraints provided that the development requires 20 or more parking spaces. The Zoning Administrator may require that an attendant be on duty during normal business hours.

2.    Residential Uses in the Downtown Dublin Zoning District. The Planning Commission may approve an off-street parking program by means of a Conditional Use Permit utilizing up to 25% of the required parking (excluding guest parking) as tandem (front to back) parking for multifamily residential uses in the Downtown Dublin Zoning District if all of the Conditional Use Permit findings can be made and the following additional findings:

a.    The allowance of tandem parking will not be detrimental to the project or surrounding properties.

b.    There are adequate provisions for dedicated personal storage that exceed minimum requirements for accessory storage in multifamily residential projects.

c.    Alternative modes of transportation are available in close proximity to the project effectively reducing dependency on the automobile as the primary mode of travel.

3.    Residential Uses Outside of the Downtown Dublin Zoning District. Tandem (front to back) parking is not permitted to satisfy required parking within a single-family dwelling unit attached garage or a multifamily dwelling unit attached garage. Rev. Ord. 10-13 (December 2013); Ord. 6-13 (November 2013); Ord. 7-05 (March 2005); Ord. 16-02 (October 2002); Ord. 28-99 (December 1999)

8.76.070 Development Standards.

Off-street parking and loading spaces and circulation shown on an Off-Street Parking and Loading Plan, and shown on a Site Plan required by Site Development Review shall conform to the following development standards:

A.    Off-Street Parking Development Standards.

1.    Access. All parking areas shall provide suitable maneuvering room so that all vehicles may enter an abutting street in a forward direction. The Director of Public Works may approve exceptions for single-family homes and other residential projects. No parking spaces shall be located so that a vehicle will maneuver within 20 feet of a vehicular entrance measured from the right-of-way.

2.    Bicycle Parking and Support Facilities. Residential and Non-Residential bicycle parking requirements and support facilities shall conform to the California Green Building Standards Code.

3.    Circulation Aisle Width Without Parking. The minimum width of a two-way drive aisle with no parking on either side of the drive aisle is twenty (20) feet. The minimum width of a one-way drive aisle with no parking on either side of the drive aisle is twelve (12) feet.

4.    Circulation Aisle for Emergency Access. The minimum width of a drive aisle needed for an emergency response vehicle shall be twenty (20) feet.

5.    Compact Parking Space Location. Compact parking spaces shall generally be located in one or more continuous areas, and shall generally not be intermixed with spaces designed for full-sized cars unless required by design problems.

6.    Controlled Access Required. All parking spaces (including garage spaces) required for any land use other than a single-family or two-family dwelling shall be designed and located to provide for vehicle maneuvering on the site so that vehicles will enter any adjacent public right-of-way or private road in a forward direction. All circulation systems shall be approved by the Director of Public Works.

7.    Dimensional Requirements.

a.    Parking space sizes. Full-size parking spaces shall be 9 feet in width and 20 feet in length. Compact parking spaces shall be 8 feet wide and 17 feet in length. The length of parking spaces may be reduced by 2 feet if the vehicles parked in them will overhang landscaping or a sidewalk such that the sidewalk is not reduced to an unencumbered width of less than 4 feet.

b.    Perpendicular. Parking stalls shall be non-perpendicular whenever possible.

c.    Garages and carports. A minimum unobstructed inside dimension of 20 feet by 20 feet shall be maintained for a private two-car garage or carport.
