Bill BL2018-1288 (as amended)

An ordinance to amend Title 17 of the Metropolitan Code of Laws, the Zoning Ordinance of The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County, pertaining to parking requirements for certain types of uses (Proposal No. 2018Z-005TX-001).

WHEREAS, the Metropolitan Government, through Chapter 17.20 of the Zoning Code, establishes standards for vehicle parking, loading, and access to provide for reasonable utilization of land without creating adverse impacts on abutting properties or the community as a whole; and

WHEREAS, section 17.20.030 of the Zoning Code establishes the number of parking spaces required for each land use classification contained in the Zoning Code; and

WHEREAS, implicit within section 17.20.030 of the Metropolitan Code is the assumption that the designated parking spaces shall be used and/or available primarily to the occupants and/or residents of the related land use. For clarity, however, this assumption should be made explicit.


Section 1. That Section 17.20.030 A. of the Zoning Code is hereby amended by deleting the introductory sentence thereto and substituting the following in lieu thereof:

17.20.030 - Parking requirements established.

The number of parking spaces required for each land use classification of this Zoning Code is established in Table 17.20.030. Each parking space designated therein must be available for use primarily to the occupants, tenants and/or residents of the related land use.

Section 2. Be it further enacted, that this ordinance take effect immediately after its passage and such change be published in a newspaper of general circulation, the welfare of The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County requiring it.
