The provisions of this Section shall not apply to surface parking located on the roof of a building, indoor parking garages, public parking garages, structured parking facilities, or developments or enlargements in which at least 70 percent of the floor area or lot area on a zoning lot is used for automotive uses listed in Use Groups 9 or 16.
For the purposes of this Section, an “open parking area” shall mean that portion of a zoning lot used for the parking or maneuvering of vehicles, including service vehicles, which is not covered by a building. Open parking areas shall also include all required landscaped areas within and adjacent to the open parking area.
