A parking waiver is required when strict compliance with Article E of the Zoning Ordinance (Off-Street Parking and Loading) cannot be achieved in the design of a parking facility. Waiver requests usually address landscaping, setbacks, or the number of parking spaces required by the ordinance.
An applicant may seek a waiver either before or during the course of an application for a building permit. The following information should be forwarded to the Director of DPS:
Zoning staff will process the application, schedule a public hearing, and finalize a recommendation for the director. The applicant will be notified of the Director's decision in writing.
The total cost for each Parking Waiver is $858.00. The total fee includes a hearing fee of $780.00 and a 10% Automation Enhancement Fee of $78.00.
Once a public hearing has been held, the record is usually kept open for ten days to allow additional information to be presented/ considered. Typically the Director makes a decision within two weeks from the date that the record has officially closed.
