Body
SUMMARY & BACKGROUND:
The City of Toledo seeks to comprehensively address issues related to parking lots in the downtown. Currently, the abundance of intrusions by parked vehicles into city right of way, including sidewalks and alleys, along with unmarked entrances and exits, are a danger to the health, general welfare and safety of the public and considered a nuisance by City Council. This Ordinance creates uniform parking lot regulation and standards in the Downtown Overlay District to improve appearance and security in the heart of the City. This Ordinance also modernizes the General Parking Lot Code as set forth in Chapter 743; and amends the license fee schedule for surface parking lots in Toledo. License proceeds would be placed in a revenue accruing account and dedicated to enforcement of the parking code and improvements to downtown infrastructure.

In order to reduce hardship upon parking operators, the Code would be amended to allow the City to improve encroachments on the City rights of ways in situations which will be approved by the City and a newly formed downtown parking committee dedicated to surface lots. The companion Code provision for creation of the parking committee and design standard will be heard by the Plan Commission June 13th, 2019.
