Providing Parking for Customers

Outside of the downtown area, off-street parking and loading spaces are usually required for each business. Off-street parking and loading spaces are not required in the Central Business District. There are several City-owned and maintained lots to support businesses in the downtown area. When a building is constructed, expanded, or the use changes, the off-street parking standards must be met. Parking requirements vary by land use, but the number of spaces required is typically based on the size of the building (in square feet or seating capacity).
