Special Permit for Accessory Off-street Commercial Loading Spaces

Within C4-6 Districts, the City Planning Commission may, by special permit, allow a reduction or waiver in the number of required loading berths, provided that:

  1. curbside deliveries will not create or contribute to serious traffic congestion or unduly inhibit vehicular or pedestrian movement and will not interfere with the efficient functioning of nearby uses; and
  2. an efficient goods receiving system will be implemented within the commercial establishment to expedite the movement of goods from the curb to areas within the establishment.

The Commission may prescribe appropriate conditions and safeguards to minimize adverse effects on the character of the surrounding area.
