R3 R4 R5 R6 R7 R8 R9 R10

In the districts indicated, a greater number of off-street parking spaces than permitted under the provisions of Section 25-16 (Maximum Spaces for Other Than Single-Family Detached Residences) may be provided if the Commissioner of Buildings determines that:

(a)        such additional spaces are needed for the occupants of residences to which such spaces are accessory, in order to prevent excessive on-street parking; and

(b)        such spaces are designed in such a way as to minimize traffic on streets with predominantly residential frontages.

The Commissioner of Buildings shall establish appropriate additional regulations with respect to the design of the parking areas to minimize adverse effects on the character of surrounding areas.
