20.124.010 Purpose.

The purpose of this chapter is to:

(1) Implement the city’s comprehensive plan;

(2) Ensure that the city’s supply of available parking matches parking demand most of the time;

(3) Encourage the continued development of Port Orchard as a walkable community;

(4) Support the efficient provision of transit services including buses and passenger ferries;

(5) Support transit-oriented development in local centers;

(6) Limit the creation of unnecessary new impervious surfaces;

(7) Ensure the efficient use of available and existing parking;

(8) Provide alternatives to single occupant vehicle trips;

(9) Encourage the creation of housing that is affordable to all segments of the population;

(10) Provide housing, employment, and commerce opportunities to residents who, by choice or other limitation, do not own a car;

(11) Recognize innovations in transportation including car sharing, ride sharing, bike sharing, and other emerging technologies that are likely to change transportation patterns in the future;

(12) Recognize that the city’s goals related to the development of walkable local centers is hindered by restrictive parking minimums and that expansion of transit service as an alternative to single occupant vehicle ownership is hindered by the lack of development in local centers; and

(13) Support the commitment expressed in the city’s comprehensive plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. (Ord. 011-19 § 5 (Exh. 2); Ord. 019-17 § 18 (Exh. 1)).

20.124.020 Authority and application.

(1) The city shall not issue any land use approval (including building permits, subdivisions, conditional use permits, binding site plans, short subdivisions, or other similar approvals which have the effect of creating a parking demand) or issue an occupancy permit for any new building or a change in use unless the use complies with the parking requirements found in this chapter.

(2) Parking studies prepared by individuals with expertise in traffic and parking analysis may be required at the discretion of the director for unique projects which don’t fit squarely in the land use categories contained herein. The director may require that such studies be evaluated and reviewed by outside experts hired by the city at the developer’s expense prior to city acceptance.

(3) Required parking may be provided off site if contracts and/or deed restrictions are provided to ensure the satisfaction of the minimum parking quantity requirements found in this chapter in perpetuity. Should the parking quantity requirements found in this chapter change, a contract and/or deed restriction may be amended by agreement with the city so long as minimum parking quantity requirements continue to be met under the new standard. (Ord. 011-19 § 5 (Exh. 2); Ord. 019-17 § 18 (Exh. 1)).

20.124.030 Off-street parking spaces requirement.

(1) Off-street parking areas shall contain at a minimum the number of vehicle and bicycle parking spaces set forth in POMC 20.124.040 and 20.124.140. Off-street parking ratios expressed as number of spaces per square feet means the gross square footage of floor area. If the formula for determining the number of off-street parking spaces results in a fraction, the number of off-street parking spaces shall be rounded to the nearest whole number with fractions of 0.50 or greater rounding up and fractions below 0.50 rounding down.

(2) An applicant may request a modification of the minimum required number of parking spaces by submitting an application for an administrative variance type 2 pursuant to POMC 20.28.150.

(3) When the city has received a shell-and-core building permit application, off-street parking requirements shall be based on the possible tenant improvements or uses authorized by the zone designation and compatible with the limitations of the shell-and-core permit. When the range of possible uses result in different parking requirements, the director will establish the amount of required parking based on a likely range of uses. (Ord. 011-19 § 5 (Exh. 2); Ord. 019-17 § 18 (Exh. 1)).

20.124.040 Bicycle parking required.

(1) Bicycle parking facilities shall be provided for new buildings or facilities, additions to or enlargements of existing buildings, or for changes in the use of buildings or facilities that result in the need for additional auto parking facilities in accordance with the parking requirements in POMC 20.124.140 and where required in Table 20.124.140. The director is authorized to approve modifications to these standards when the applicant successfully demonstrates that the proposed alternative layout, location, design or type of racking meets the intent of these standards.

(2) The number of required bicycle parking spaces shall be calculated as shown in Table 20.124.140.

(3) Individual bicycle parking spaces shall be a minimum of 75 inches long by 24 inches wide for each space. Where double-sided multi-racks are utilized resulting in overlapping of bicycle parking spaces, the minimum bicycle parking space for two bicycles shall be 100 inches long by 36 inches wide.

(4) Bicycle parking racks shall be located in areas visible from public right-of-way and shall be provided with adequate lighting if intended for use after dark. A minimum of 50 percent of the required number of bicycle parking spaces shall be located within 50 feet of a public entrance to the building requiring bicycle parking spaces.

(5) Bicycle parking racks shall support the bikes in a stable, upright position, without damage to wheels, frame or other components.

(6) Bicycle parking racks shall support the frame of the bicycle at two points of contact and at least one wheel. Racks shall allow the frame and one wheel to be locked to the rack, regardless of whether the front wheel is removed or not. Racks shall be securely anchored. Racks shall accommodate a wide variety of sizes and types of bicycles, including those with water bottles or without kick stands.

(7) Bicycle parking racks shall be permanently mounted/installed within private property on solid surfaces. Racks placed adjacent to sidewalks shall not encroach upon required pedestrian access ways, accessible routes or accessible passing space areas.

(8) Access shall be provided to each required bicycle parking space. Aisles shall have a width of at least three feet to the front, rear or side of the bicycle parking spaces.

(9) Racks shall be placed a minimum of 24 inches away from walls and other elements that may create an obstacle to accessing the bike parking spaces.

(10) Where the required bicycle parking spaces cannot be properly located upon the property generating the need for bicycle parking, the owner or applicant of the property generating the need for bicycle parking may apply for a street use from the city for permission to locate the bicycle parking on city right-of-way.

(11) New and existing buildings and facilities may substitute up to 10 percent of the required vehicular spaces for additional bike parking. Substitutions shall be made based on one vehicular parking space for at least six bicycle parking spaces. (Ord. 011-19 § 5 (Exh. 2)).

20.124.050 Electric vehicle parking required.

(1) Beginning January 1, 2020, development for each of the land uses identified in Table 20.124.050(1) shall be required to provide electric vehicle infrastructure as shown in the table.

(10) Accessible electric vehicle charging stations should be located in close proximity to the building or facility entrance and shall be connected to a barrier-free accessible route of travel. It is not necessary to designate the accessible electric vehicle charging station exclusively for the use of disabled persons. Below are two options for providing for accessible electric vehicle charging stations.

Option 1

Option 2

(11) Charging and Parking. Electric vehicle charging stations, where provided for public use, are reserved for parking and charging electric vehicles only, except as otherwise provided by this chapter.

(12) Electric vehicles may be parked in any space designated for public parking, subject to the restrictions that would apply to any other vehicle that would park in that space.

(13) Parking Restrictions. No person shall stop, stand or park any nonelectric vehicle in a space designated through signage as an electric vehicle charging station. Any nonelectric vehicle is subject to removal by the property owner or the property owner’s agent.

(14) Any electric vehicle in an electric vehicle parking stall that is signed exclusively for electric vehicle charging and that either: (a) is not electrically charging; or (b) is parked beyond the days and hours designated on regulatory signs posted at or near the space shall be subject to removal as posted by the property owner or the property owner’s agent. For purposes of this subsection, “charging” means an electric vehicle is parked at an electric vehicle charging station and is connected to the charging station equipment.

(15) Signage. Electric vehicle charging stations, other than in residential use, shall have posted signage, as identified in this section, allowing only charging electric vehicles to park in such spaces. (Exception: the director may allow an exemption for such signage at a portion of electric vehicle parking stalls within a publicly owned transit center upon the public transit agency demonstrating through a utilization study that not all of the electric vehicle charging stalls are needed for commuters using transit and that the amount of nonelectric vehicle parking is inadequate to meet existing needs; such exemption may be renewed by the director each year, based on a utilization study completed during the prior year.) For purposes of this subsection, “charging” means that an electric vehicle is parked at an electric vehicle charging station and is connected to the charging station equipment.

(16) Signage for parking of electric vehicles shall include:

(a) Information on the charging station to identify voltage and amperage levels and any time of use, fees, or safety information.

(b) As appropriate, directional signs to effectively guide motorists to the charging station space(s).

(17) Optional Signage. Optional information may be posted to alert potential charging station users to other expectations.

(18) An applicant may request a modification of the minimum required number of electric vehicle parking spaces by applying for an administrative variance type 2 pursuant to POMC 20.124.030(2). Relief under an administrative variance type 2 pursuant to POMC 20.124.030(2) may include but is not limited to allowing the installation of electrical conduits and sizing panels and electrical services to standard parking stalls in support of the future installation of charging facilities while waiving or delaying requirements for installing wiring and chargers as a condition of the project. (Ord. 011-19 § 5 (Exh. 2)).

20.124.060 Accessible parking requirements.

Off-street accessible parking shall be provided in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, or as subsequently amended, and all state and federal standards including but not limited to the minimum number of standard and van accessible spaces based on the total off-street parking facility size. (Ord. 011-19 § 5 (Exh. 2); Ord. 019-17 § 18 (Exh. 1)).

20.124.070 Stacking spaces for drive-through facilities.

(1) A stacking space shall be an area measuring eight feet by 20 feet with direct forward access to a service window of a drive-through facility. A stacking space shall be located to prevent any vehicle from extending onto the public right-of-way or interfering with any pedestrian circulation, traffic maneuvering, or other parking space areas. Stacking spaces for drive-through or drive-in uses may not be counted as required parking spaces.

(2) Uses providing drive-up or drive-through services shall provide vehicle stacking spaces in the following serial or combined sequence per lane of drive-up window; such required spaces shall include the drive-up window space itself:

(a) For each service window of a drive-through restaurant, a minimum of five stacking spaces shall be provided.

(b) For all other uses, each drive-up window requires a minimum of three stacking spaces.

(c) The director may require a vehicle stacking study for proposals if evidence exists to indicate that more than the minimum stacking spaces under subsections (2)(a) and (b) of this section are required to serve a particular use or development.

(3) Stacking spaces shall be screened from the right-of-way and adjacent properties using a five-foot type A or B landscape buffer as described in POMC 20.128.060. (Ord. 011-19 § 5 (Exh. 2); Ord. 019-17 § 18 (Exh. 1)).

20.124.080 Transit and rideshare provisions.

To support the use of ridesharing as an alternative mode of transportation that will aid the city in its efforts to reduce air pollution, traffic congestion, and fossil fuel consumption, the following shall apply:

(1) All land uses with 25 employees working at any given work site during a single work shift listed under the government/business services and manufacturing tables shall be required to reserve parking spaces for registered rideshare vehicle parking as follows:

(a) There shall be a minimum of one open parking space reserved for an employee rideshare vehicle, and all registered rideshare vehicles shall have a reserved parking space.

(b) A vehicle parked in a rideshare vehicle only parking space must be registered in Kitsap Transit’s countywide public rideshare vehicle registration program, qualify as a rideshare vehicle as defined by Kitsap Transit, and display a valid car/vanpool pass.

(c) Each rideshare vehicle parking space shall be clearly labeled with a Kitsap Transit carpool or vanpool parking sign.

(d) Except for disabled parking spaces, rideshare vehicle parking spaces shall be located closer to the primary employee entrance than any other employee parking spaces.

(2) When one or more scheduled transit routes provide service within 660 feet of the employment site and there is designated pedestrian access, the planning director may reduce the number of required off-street parking spaces.

(3) All uses which are located on an existing transit route and are required under the computation for required off-street parking to provide more than 200 parking spaces may be required to provide transit shelters, bus turnout lanes or other transit improvements as a condition of permit approval. Uses that reduce required parking pursuant to subsection (2) of this section may provide transit shelters if transit routes adjoin the site. (Ord. 011-19 § 5 (Exh. 2); Ord. 019-17 § 18 (Exh. 1)).

20.124.090 Pedestrian circulation and access.

The following general pedestrian design standards shall apply to all developments throughout the city in addition to those outlined elsewhere within the special design districts:

(1) All uses, except single-family detached buildings, shall provide pedestrian access onto the site. Pedestrian access shall be located as follows:

(a) Access points at property edges and to adjacent lots shall be coordinated with the existing development to provide circulation patterns between development sites. Pedestrian access to adjacent lots shall not be required if the topography is greater than three percent between the lots.

(b) Residential developments shall provide links between cul-de-sacs or groups of buildings to allow pedestrian access from within the development and from adjacent developments to activity centers, parks, common tracts, open spaces, schools or other public facilities, transit stops, and public streets.

(2) Pedestrian walkways shall minimize the conflict between pedestrians and traffic at all points of pedestrian access to on-site parking and building entrances as follows:

(a) All developments which contain more than one building shall provide walkways between the principal entrances of the buildings.

(b) Pedestrian walkways across parking areas shall be located as either one of the following:

(i) Walkways running parallel to the parking rows shall be provided at a minimum of every two parking lot aisles.

(ii) Walkways running perpendicular to the parking rows shall be no further apart than 25 parking spaces.

(3) Pedestrian access and walkways shall meet the following minimum design standards:
