Docks for passenger ocean vessels in C6 Districts

In C6 Districts, the City Planning Commission may permit docks for passenger ocean vessels, other than gambling vessels.

As a condition for granting a special permit, the Commission shall find that:

(a)        such facility will not create serious pedestrian or vehicular traffic congestion that would unduly inhibit surface traffic and pedestrian flow in the surrounding area;

(b)        the streets providing access to such facility will be adequate to handle the traffic generated thereby;

(c)        an area will be provided for the drop-off and pick-up of passengers by private car, taxi, van and bus that, at a minimum, meets the requirements of Section 62-462 (Passenger drop-off and pick-up areas for docking facilities), and which is so designed as to avoid traffic or pedestrian conflict on the streets providing access to the facility; and

(d)        such use will not be incompatible with or adversely affect the essential character, use or future growth of the surrounding area.

The Commission may prescribe additional appropriate conditions and safeguards to minimize adverse effects on the character of the surrounding area, including the provision of accessory off-street parking spaces, accessory off-street loading berths or additional area for the temporary parking of vehicles or buses for drop-off and pick-up of passengers.
