This chapter shall be known and cited as the "Off-Street Parking Ordinance."
[Ord. No. 206, passed 5-10-1990]
The term "off-street parking," as used in this chapter, means the parking of motor vehicles and/or trailers on properties containing common areas accessory to business, manufacturing, industrial, office, apartment, multi-family and townhouse uses, as such are used or defined in the Zoning Code, and shall not mean parking on the public streets of this Township.
[Ord. No. 206, passed 5-10-1990]
This chapter shall not pre-empt, amend or preclude enforcement of any regulation applicable to off-street parking under the Fire Prevention Code of the Township of Upper Providence. The regulations and remedies for violations thereof contained in this chapter shall be in addition to, and may be enforced and exercised, as the case may be, concurrently with or in lieu of, the regulations and remedies for violations thereof contained in the said Fire Prevention Code.
[Ord. No. 206, passed 5-10-1990]
All off-street parking facilities shall be provided for and satisfactorily maintained in accordance with the requirements of the Zoning Code and the Subdivision and land Development Regulations that are applicable to the use served by such facilities or such requirements as mandated by the Township, as reflected by the final plan(s) submitted and approved by the Township at the time of the establishment, erection, enlargement, alteration and/or development of any building or use, for each building or use as set forth therein.
[Ord. No. 206, passed 5-10-1990]
All required off-street parking facilities or approved off-street provisions for parking shall be provided and maintained so long as the use exists for which the facilities were designed to serve. Off-street parking facilities shall not be reduced in total except when such reduction is approved by the Township. All parking spaces shall be and remain clearly marked and shall not be reduced in size. All parking spaces shall be fully accessible for use by the general public without fee unless otherwise approved by the Township. All off-street parking spaces in parking lots shall be designated by spacing and striping approved by the Township.
[Ord. No. 206, passed 5-10-1990]
No person shall park or to leave unattended any vehicle or trailer on any property containing any business, manufacturing, industrial, office, apartment, multifamily or townhouse use, or on any area accessory to such use, so as to fully or partially block or impede the access by fire and safety vehicle to or through an off-street parking area. For the purposes of this chapter, a vehicle or trailer parked outside a striped parking space in a parking lot shall be deemed to be fully or partially blocking the access of fire and safety vehicles to or through an off-street parking area. In any proceeding for a violation of the provisions of this section, the registration plate, if any, displayed on such motor vehicle shall be prima-facie evidence that the owner of said motor vehicle was either operating said motor vehicle or was in operation and control of said motor vehicle at the time of said violation. All such vehicles may be removed by the police at the expense of the owner.
