[Ord. 1028-85, 8/12/1985]
The boundary limits of the Borough are hereby established as a zone in which motor vehicles may remain standing without lights, and all highways within such boundary limits are hereby designated as highways where motor vehicles may remain standing without lights.
[Ord. 1028-85, 8/12/1985; as amended by Ord. 1376-10, 5/10/2010, § 1]
1. 
Generally. The loading and unloading of goods, wares and merchandise from any motor vehicle is hereby restricted to such length of time as is reasonably necessary for the purpose of loading and unloading of such goods, wares and merchandise. For the purpose of enforcement of this section, such loading or unloading of any motor vehicle shall not be considered as parking; however, except as specifically provided in this section relative to the loading and unloading of motor vehicles, no person shall load or unload a motor vehicle from any place upon any street or alley in the Borough where parking is prohibited or shall allow a motor vehicle to remain for loading or unloading in any place upon any street or alley where parking is limited as to time for longer than the time for which parking is permitted, or shall load or unload upon any street or alley in such a way that one lane for vehicular traffic shall not be kept open at all times.
2. 
Loading and Unloading of Motor Vehicles. Stopping, standing and/or parking of motor vehicles for the purpose of loading or unloading of goods, wares and merchandise at commercial, business, office or dining establishments shall be permitted upon the streets or alleys of the Borough of Gettysburg where such loading or unloading of goods, wares and merchandise will serve to minimize congestion in busy areas of the Borough by leaving open the primary public streets of the Borough for use by the traveling public. This exception for loading and unloading of motor vehicles is only where such street or alley provides ample space for the loading and unloading of goods, wares and merchandise. Where the primary public street servicing a commercial, business, office or dining establishment contains adequate available parking spaces and minimal traffic congestion, the loading or unloading of goods, wares and merchandise shall be completed from the available parking spaces on said primary public street. However, it is generally the policy of the Borough of Gettysburg that the loading and unloading of goods, wares and merchandise by motor vehicles occur where reasonably safe and practical in the public alleys to the rear of properties being serviced by such motor vehicles.
A. 
Through Traffic. In the event that a motor vehicle utilizes a public alley of the Borough for the purpose of loading or unloading of goods, wares and merchandise as an alternative to blocking parking spaces and traffic flow on the public streets of the Borough, such motor vehicle shall be permitted to load or unload in a manner that will block through traffic on narrow alleys of the Borough for loading and unloading only and only for the amount of time which is reasonably necessary for loading and/or unloading of the motor vehicle.
B. 
State Roads. Loading and unloading of motor vehicles as provided for in this section is limited to the public streets and alleys of the Borough of Gettysburg. No stopping, standing and/or parking of motor vehicles for the purpose of loading or unloading shall be authorized on state roads or highways except as allowed pursuant to the laws and regulations of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
C. 
Enforcement. The use of the public streets and alleys of the Borough for the purpose of loading and/or unloading of motor vehicles shall be enforced by the Gettysburg Borough Police Department. As the purpose of this provision is to facilitate the flow of traffic through the Borough in order to lessen congestion and to ensure the safety of the traveling public, the Police Department shall have discretion to balance the needs of a commercial, business, office or dining establishment in the loading and unloading of goods, wares and merchandise and the convenience and safety of the traveling public on the public streets and alleys of the Borough.

1. 
Wherever a particular parking space shall be lined or marked off on any street or alley or upon the adjacent curb, every vehicle parked shall be parked within the lines marking such parking space. All vehicles parked on streets or alleys, whether parking spaces are marked or not, shall be parked only in the direction of the permitted traffic flow.
2.
