3.3.100 Purpose.

The purpose of this chapter is to provide basic and flexible standards for the development of vehicle parking, loading and bicycle parking. The design of parking and loading areas is critically important to the viability of some commercial areas, pedestrian and driver safety, the efficient and safe operation of adjoining streets, and community image and livability. Because vehicle-parking facilities can occupy large amounts of land, they must be planned and designed carefully to use the land efficiently while maintaining the visual character of the community. This chapter recognizes that each development has unique parking needs by providing a flexible approach for determining parking space requirements (i.e., “minimum” and “performance-based” standards). This chapter also provides standards for bicycle parking because many people use bicycles for recreation, commuting, and general transportation. Children as well as adults need safe and adequate spaces to park their bicycles throughout the community. [Ord. NS-2016, 2006]

3.3.200 Applicability.

All development within the City of Bend shall comply with the provisions of this chapter.

In the Central Business District (CBD), prior to the issuance of any building permit for construction of a new building, enlargement of an existing building, or the change of use requiring additional off-street parking as required by BDC 3.3.300, the owner or occupant shall pay a fee in lieu of providing the required off-street parking or provide the off-street parking as specified in Table 3.3.300. The fee to be paid in lieu of providing parking shall be calculated on the basis of parking spaces required by this chapter. The fee and the policies regarding fees in lieu of parking shall be established by resolution by the City Council.

The fee shall be a one-time fee deposited into a fund to be used only for the planning, acquisition, development and maintenance of off-street parking facilities located in and/or adjacent to the CBD. [Ord. NS-2016, 2006]

3.3.300 Vehicle Parking Standards for On-Site Requirements. Revised 10/18

The minimum number of required off-street vehicle parking spaces (i.e., parking that is located in parking lots and garages and not in the street right-of-way) shall be determined based on the standards in this section.

A.    Off-Street Parking Requirements. The number of required off-street vehicle parking spaces shall be determined in accordance with the following standards. Off-street parking spaces may include spaces in garages, carports, parking lots, and/or driveways if vehicles are not parked in a vehicle travel lane (including emergency or fire access lanes). In applying the exceptions and reductions listed in subsections (B), (C), and (D) of this section, reductions and exceptions may be combined except where otherwise specified. Where a fractional number of spaces results, the required number of spaces shall be rounded down to the nearest whole number.

Institutional and employment master plans must provide a transportation and parking demand management (TPDM) plan in compliance with BDC Chapter 4.5, Master Planning and Development Alternatives, and BDC Chapter 4.8, Transportation and Parking Demand Management (TPDM) Plan. All other development applications may choose to develop a TPDM plan in compliance with BDC Chapter 4.8, Transportation and Parking Demand Management (TPDM) Plan.

B.    Credit for On-Street Parking.

1.    The amount of off-street parking required may be reduced by one off-street parking space for every on-street parking space abutting the development, up to 50 percent of the requirement, except as specified in subsections (B)(1)(a) and (b) of this section.

a.    Uses within the CB Zone shall not receive credit for on-street parking, but have the option to pay a fee in lieu of providing off-street parking per BDC 3.3.200.

b.    For uses within the MU and MN Zones and in the Bend Central District, the amount of off-street parking required may be reduced by one off-street parking space for every on-street parking space abutting the development, up to 100 percent of the requirement.

2.    On-street parking shall follow the established or approved configuration of existing on-street parking, except that angled parking may be allowed for some streets, where permitted by City, ODOT and/or County standards. One on-street parking space shall be defined as follows:

a.    Parallel parking, each 24 feet of uninterrupted curb, where allowed;

b.    Forty-five-degree diagonal, each with 14 feet of curb, where allowed;

c.    Ninety-degree (perpendicular) parking, each with 12 feet of curb, where allowed;

d.    Curb space must be connected to the lot that contains the use;

e.    Parking spaces will not obstruct a required clear vision area or violate any law; and

f.    On-street parking spaces credited for a specific use may not be used exclusively by that use, but shall be available for general public use at all times. No signs or action limiting general public use of on-street spaces is permitted.

C.    Parking Location and Shared Parking.

1.    Location. Vehicle parking is allowed only on approved streets, within garages, carports and other structures, or on driveways or parking lots that have been developed in conformance with this code. Specific locations for parking are indicated within the individual land use districts for some land uses (e.g., the requirement that parking be located to side or rear of buildings, with access from alleys, for some uses). Required off-street parking shall not be located within the front yard setbacks except for single-family dwellings, ADUs, duplexes and triplexes.

2.    Screening. Commercial or industrial off-street parking which adjoins a residentially designated district shall be effectively screened by a fence and landscaping with a minimum width of 10 feet unless otherwise specified in this code.

3.    Off-Site Parking. Except for single-family dwellings, the vehicle parking spaces required by this chapter may be located on another parcel of land when commercial off-site parking is permitted in the underlying zone, provided the parcel is within 1,000 feet of the use it serves and the amount of off-site parking does not exceed the minimum amount of parking required for the intended use. The distance from the parking area to the use shall be measured from the nearest parking space to a building entrance, following a sidewalk or other pedestrian route. The right to use the off-site parking must be evidenced by a recorded deed, lease, easement, or similar written instrument.

4.    Mixed-Use Developments. If more than one type of land use occupies a single structure or parcel of land, the total requirements for off-street automobile parking shall be 95 percent of the sum of the requirements for all uses, unless it can be shown that the peak parking demands are actually less (i.e., the uses operate on different days or at different times of the day). In that case, the total requirements shall be reduced accordingly. (See subsection (C)(5) of this section, Shared Parking.)

5.    Shared Parking. Required parking facilities for two or more uses, structures, or parcels of land may be satisfied by the same parking facilities used jointly, to the extent that the owners or operators show that the need for parking facilities does not materially overlap (e.g., uses primarily of a daytime versus nighttime nature, or of a weekday vs. weekend nature); and provided, that the right of joint use is evidenced by a binding agreement that is tied to the land or similar written instrument establishing the joint use. The binding agreement may restrict future changes to use of the property. Shared parking is encouraged.

6.    Availability of Facilities. Owners of off-street parking facilities may post a sign indicating that all parking on the site is available only for residents, customers and/or employees. Signs shall conform to the standards in the Bend Code.

D.    Exceptions and Special Standards for Parking.

1.    Exceptions for Required Parking.

a.    Seasonal outdoor seating where the seating area is less than 500 square feet is exempt from the required parking standards.

b.    The total number of required vehicle parking spaces for an industrial, commercial, or office use that is not part of a transportation and parking demand management (TPDM) plan in compliance with BDC Chapter 4.8 may be reduced by five percent for each of the listed activities which are provided by the owners or operators, up to a maximum 10 percent reduction in the total number of vehicle spaces per development.

•    Designating at least 10 percent of the employee vehicle parking spaces as carpool/vanpool parking and placing such spaces closer to the building than other employee parking.

•    Providing showers and lockers for employees who commute by bike.

•    Providing twice as many covered, secured bike racks or facilities as required by this code.

•    Providing a transit facility (e.g., bus stop) that is approved by the local transit authority, with related amenities. Related amenities include, but are not limited to, a public plaza, pedestrian sitting areas, shelter, and additional landscaping.

c.    The total number of required motor vehicle parking spaces for all uses except for single-family detached dwellings may be reduced by up to 10 percent for developments within 660 feet of a transit route (as the crow flies). Where only a portion of the site lies within 660 feet of a transit route, the reduction shall be applied only to buildings that are fully or partially within 660 feet of a transit route.

d.    The parking requirement for affordable dwelling units in conformance with BDC 3.6.200(C) is one on-site parking space per affordable dwelling unit.

2.    Special Standards for Commercial Customer Parking. The motor vehicle parking areas shall be located and designed to facilitate safe and convenient pedestrian and bicycle movement to and from public sidewalks, streets, or transit stops. Ways to achieve this standard may include, but are not limited to:

•    Front facades and primary entrances of all buildings are oriented to a public street or a private internal drive or street, to minimize pedestrian and bicycle travel through a parking area and to provide safe, convenient, and direct travel routes for pedestrians;

•    One or more raised walkways are provided through the parking areas, meeting Federal Americans with Disabilities Act requirements, in order to provide safe, convenient, and direct travel routes for pedestrians through the parking areas;

•    Walkways abutting parking spaces or maneuvering areas are protected from vehicles through either landscaping buffers, minimum three feet wide on each side, or curbs on both sides;

•    Walkways across vehicle aisles are delineated by nonasphaltic material in a different color or texture than the parking areas;

•    On-site pedestrian walkways and bikeways connect to existing pedestrian and bicycle circulation systems that serve adjacent commercial uses or residential areas;

•    Internal drives or streets are designed to City standards for local streets in regard to pavement width, sidewalks, and street trees. Sidewalks comply with ADA standards. Sidewalks 10 to 15 feet wide abutting front building facades are strongly encouraged. Internal vehicular circulation design for the site complies with City street connectivity standards, including maximum block length and perimeter;

•    Internal drives or streets connect to public streets abutting the site, unless physically precluded by preexisting buildings;

•    Structures are located on the site to facilitate future infill and redevelopment of parking and landscape areas;

•    For shopping centers abutting one or more future transit routes, one or more transit stops are located and designed with the approval when applicable of the local transit provider;

•    No drive-up, drive-in, or drive-through drives or lanes are located between a building and a public or private street.

E.    Maximum Number of Parking Spaces. The number of parking spaces provided by any particular use in ground surface parking lots shall not exceed the required minimum number of spaces provided by this section by more than 50 percent. Spaces provided on-street, or within the building footprint of structures, such as in rooftop parking, or under-structure parking, or in multi-level parking above or below surface lots, shall not apply toward the maximum number of allowable spaces. Parking spaces provided through “shared parking” also do not apply toward the maximum number.
