Documents: Authorization Memo to BOCC – text amendments for parking-related uses and regulations for August 22, 2017

Background

Staff identified a need for a Land Use Code use definition that allows for offsite parking in areas where onsite parking is constrained and where the allowance of offsite parking facilities would help maintain the character and function of the area. Staff proposes to develop a definition for a Multimodal Parking Facility. This may include integrating the use definition of Park and Ride Facility (5-514.D) and adding an accessory Parking Lot use in Article 5-516.
