Section 916. Interim parking.


916.1. Intent.

       It is intended that this section allow for a mechanism which will enable conditionally,
unimproved and partially improved lots in the city to be utilized, for accessory parking purposes in a
temporary fashion or as a component of facilities which require parking on an event by event basis,
without having to pavc comply with permanent parking requirements on the proposed interim lots to

File Number: 08-01419zt                                                                 Enactment Number: 13058

accomplish this goal. As specified herein, proposals subject to this section shall also ensure that safety
measures are implemented which will safeguard users of the subject facilities.

916.2. Special permit required for approval.

       An interim parking facility or interim parking shall be defined as a surface parking lot for which
paving, drainage and marking of parking spaces as well as other improvements incidental to
permanent parking lots shall not be required.

         There shall be two (2). three (3) types of interim parking as follows:

(a) Temporary special event parking, and
(b) Short-term event parking-And
(c) Interim special use parking.

916.2.1. Temporary special event parking. Temporary special event parking on unimproved interim
parking lots, as defined herein, shall mean parking      e permitted pursuant to Class I Special
Permit and only in conjunction with an approved special event that requires the additional parking to
be accommodated on said lot(s).

916.2.2. Short-term event parking facilities. Short-term event parking facilitics chall bo means parkinq
permitted as a conditional use on non-residentially zoned lots, within a six hundred (600) one thousand
(1000) foot radius of the major public facility they are intended to serve, pursuant to a Class II Special
Permit subject to the applicable criteria in Section 1305,                                             , and
only in conjunction with major public facilities such as major sports facilities, arenas, exhibition centers,
performing arts centers and any other such major public facility whose scale and operation warrant the
use of interim parking facilities on an event-by-event basis versus daily year-round use.

The intent in permitting these types of interim parking facilities is to obtain full code compliance within
a-Gne-yeaF-per-i-ecl, Renewals may only be granted by the City Manager upon findings and
recommendations by the Director of the Department of Planning and Zoning that such renewals are in
the best interest of the City for reasons related to insufficient parking within proximity of a major public
facility; ouch renewals shall not be extended beyond December 31, 2002. At such time that renewals
are granted, the City Manager may include conditions to mitigate safety concerns that arise as
reported by the NET Administrator, Code Enforcement or the Miami Police Department that pertain to
the particular parking facility in question. Parking spaces provided on this type of as interim parking
facility shall not be counted toward meeting required parking for any such major public facility, unless
parking spaces are either owned, controlled, or under agreement for use by the major public facility it
serves.

916.2.3. Interim special use parking.

Interim special use parking means parking permitted as a conditional use on non-residentially zoned
lots, within a one thousand (1000) foot radius of the special uses they are intended to serve, pursuant
to a Class II Special Permit subject to the applicable criteria in Section 1305, and only in conjunction
with uses such as special entertainment districts, historic districts which consist predominantly of
non-residentially zoned properties, government facilities or institutional uses whose scale and
operation warrant the daily year round use of interim parking facilities rather than temporary special
event uses. Special use areas may also include other public or private attractions and uses that are

File Number: 08-01419zt                                                                Enactment Number: 13058

over ten (10) acres in size that could benefit from interim parking such as a dog track, amusement
park or flea market.

Yearly renewals for short-term event parking and interim special use parking may be issued annually
by the City Manager upon findings and recommendations by the Director of the Department of
Planning that such renewals are in the best interest of the City for reasons related to insufficient
parking within proximity of the special uses. Renewals may include conditions to mitigate safety
concerns that arise as reported by the NET Administrator, Code Enforcement or the Miami Police
Department that pertain to the particular parking facility in question. Parking spaces provided under
this type of interim parking facility shall not be counted toward meeting required parking for any such
special use they serve, unless such parking facility is in full code compliance.

916.3. Considerations and standards.

        In order to mitigate any potentially adverse effects that unimproved interim parking lots may
have on adjacent areas, all such facilities intended to be utilized as
described in sections 916.2.2. and 916.2.3. above, shall be required to maintain a park-like
appearance to consist of fully sodded lots over an approved stabilized, below grade, pervious system
or any other type of system which provides a honeycomb type stabilized base underneath the lot and
therefore allows for parking on the sod while not impeding drainage.

        In lieu of providing a park-like appearance as described above, a parking facility may be paved
or consist of any combination of paving, gravel and grass upon approval by the city of a sufficient
alternate drainage system. Except for temporary special event parking (as defined above) associated
with a Class I Special Permit, all other interim parking shall comply with applicable ADA requirements
as set forth in the Florida Building Code, as amended from time to time.

        Interim parking facilities may also be used for the temporary staging of miscellaneous
equipment and/or vehicles necessary for any of the functions associated with an approved special
event or an activity taking place in a major public facility subject to all applicable regulations and
special permits listed above.

       All interim parking and staging activities permissible under this section shall be limited in
duration to a time specified in the special permit obtained. The duration shall run concurrently with the
event or activity requiring said parking or staging, and may be expanded on a limited basis to allow for
preparation, disassembly and activities related to that specific event or activity.

        In addition to the considerations and standards listed generally in section 1305 of this
ordinance, Class I and Class II Special Permits for interim parking facilities shall also consider the
following:

(a) Use of traffic monitors to facilitate vehicular flow into and out of such facilities during major
events;
(b) Use of specialized lighting features to ensure safety when such facilities are proposed for evening
use; and
(c) Use of perimeter fencing to assist in the control of access points and security of proposed lots
while not in use.
(d) Surface interim parking lots, which are located within the SD-5, SD-6, SD-7, SD-20 or designated
CRA areas of Southeast Overtown/Park West or Omni, shall may also be subject required to comply

with the conditions and criteria set forth in Section 917.3.2. as conditions to the special permits
required herein or as conditions of time extensions granted by the City Manager.
(e) All such interim parking lots may also be required to comply with any design standards and
guidelines that may be in place for the specified area in which the parking lot is located (i.e. uniform
signage, fencing and attendant kiosk standards).

declared invalid, the remaining provisions of this Ordinance shall not be affected.

PLANNING RECOMMENDATION           APPROVAL


BACKGROUND AND ANALYSIS           This ordinance will allow for the continuation of interim parking
                                  facilities by special permit with new requirements that will
                                  ensure compliance with minimum parking lot standards over a
                                  period of 5 years. This provision of the code had previously
                                  been sunset and the result has been a number of facilities with
                                  code compliance issues. The removal of the sunset provision
                                  with new standards will allow this important function to
                                  continue legally while assuring compliance over time.
                                  See attached report of concerns from Miami Police
                                  Department.

unimproved and partially improved lots in the city to be utilized, for accessory parking purposes in a
temporary fashion or as a component of facilities which require parking on an event by event basis ,

accomplish this goal. As specified herein, proposals subject to this section shall also ensure that safety
measures are implemented which will safeguard users of the subject facilities.

916.2. Special permit required for approval.

       An interim parking facility shall be defined as a surface parking lot for which paving, drainage
and marking of parking spaces as well as other improvements incidental to permanent parking lots

Lcl Interim special use parking.

916.2.1. Temporary special event parking.      Temporary special event parking on unimproved interim
parking lots, as defined herein, shall only be permitted pursuant to Class I Special Permit and only in
conjunction with an approved special event that requires the additional parking to be accommodated

916.2.2. Short-term event parking facilities. Short-term event parking facilities shall be permitted as a
conditional use on non-residentially zoned lots, within a six hundred (600) one thousand (1000) foot

subject to the applicable criteria in Section 1305,                                       e-- , and only in

conjunction with major public facilities such as major sports facilities, arenas, exhibition centers,
performing arts centers and any other such major public facility whose scale and operation warrant the
use of interim parking facilities on an event-by-event basis versus daily year-round use.

                      •- -     - -se types of    mTl paresfacilities is to ebtaia kill code compliance within
a one y ar period. Renewals may only be granted by the City Manager upon findings and

Director of the Department of Planning that such renewals are in the best interest of the City for
reasons related to insufficient parking within proximity of the special uses. At such time that renewals

File Number. 08-01419zt


916.3. Considerations and standards.

        In order to mitigate any potentially adverse effects that unimproved interim parking lots may
have on adjacent areas, all such facilities intended to be utilized as
described in sections 916.2.2. and 916.2.3. above, shall be required to maintain a park-like
appearance to consist of fully sodded lots over an approved stabilized, below grade, pervious system
or any other type of system which provides a honeycomb type stabilized base underneath the lot and
therefore allows for parking on the sod while not impeding drainage.

       In lieu of providinq a park-like appearance as described above, a parking facility may be paved
upon approval by the public works director of a sufficient alternate drainage system.

         Interim parking facilities may also be used for the temporary staging of miscellaneous
equipment and/or vehicles necessary for any of the functions associated with an approved special
event or an activity taking place in a major public facility subject to all applicable regulations and
special permits listed above.

       All interim parking and staging activities permissible under this section shall be limited in
duration to a time specified in the special permit obtained. The duration shall run concurrently with the
event or activity requiring said parking or staging, and may be expanded on a limited basis to allow for
preparation, disassembly and activities related to that specific event or activity.

         In addition to the considerations and standards listed generally in section 1305 of this
ordinance, Class I and Class II Special Permits for interim parking facilities shall also consider the
following:

(a)      Use of traffic monitors to facilitate vehicular flow into and out of such facilities during major
events;
(b)    Use of specialized lighting features to ensure safety when such facilities are proposed for evening
use; and
(c)     Use of perimeter fencing to assist in the control of access points and security of proposed lots
while not in use.
(d)     Surface interim parking lots, which are located within the SD-5, SD-6, SD-7, SD-20 or designated
CRA areas of Southeast Overtown/Park West or Omni, shall may also be subject required to comply
with the conditions and criteria set forth in Section 917.3.2. as conditions to the special permits
required herein or as conditions of time extensions qranted by the City Manager.
(e) All such interim parkinq lots may also be required to comply with any design standards and
quidelines that may be in place for the specified area in which the parkinq lot is located (i.e. uniform
siqnaqe, fencinq and attendant kiosk standards).




    Section 3. If any section, part of section, paragraph, clause, phrase or word of this Ordinance is
declared invalid, the remaining provisions of this Ordinance shall not be affected.

    Section 4. This Ordinance shall become effective thirty (30) days after approval at second reading,
unless vetoed by the Mayor within ten days from the date it was passed and adopted. If the Mayor
vetoes this Ordinance, it shall become effective immediately upon override of the veto by the City

PETITION                               An Ordinance of the Miami City Commission amending
                                       Ordinance 11000, as amended, the Zoning Ordinance of
                                       the City of Miami, by amending Article 9 Section 916

PLANNING RECOMMENDATION                Approval.

    BACKGROUND AND ANALYSIS            This ordinance will allow for the continuation of interim
                                       parking facilities by special permit with new requirements
                                       that will ensure compliance with minimum parking lot
                                       standards over a period of 5 years. This provision of the
                                       code had previously been sunset and the result has been
                                       a number of facilities with code compliance issues. The
                                       removal of the sunset provision with new standards will
                                       allow this important function to continue legally while
                                       assuring compliance over time.
                                       See attached report of concerns from Miami Police
                                       Department.

LEGAL DESCRIPTION                   See supporting documentation.

PETITION                            An Ordinance of the Miami City Commission amending
                                    Ordinance 11000, as amended, the Zoning Ordinance of
                                    the City of Miami, by amending Article 9 Section 916
                                    Interim Parking, in order to remove the sunset provision
                                    of this section, add a new form of interim parking, provide
                                    for new criteria and special permit requirements, and
                                    allow for time extensions with referrals and containing a
                                    repealer provision and •a severability clause; and
                                    providing for an effective date.

PLANNING RECOMMENDATION             Approval.

BACKGROUND AND ANALYSIS             This ordinance will allow for the continuation of interim
                                    parking facilities by special permit with new requirements
                                    that will ensure compliance with minimum parking lot
                                    standards over a period of 5 years. This provision of the
                                    code had previously been sunset and the result has been
                                    a number of facilities with code compliance issues. The
                                    removal of the sunset provision with new standards will
                                    allow this important function to continue legally while
                                    assuring compliance over time.
                                    See attached report of concerns from Miami Police

and marking of parking spaces as well as other improvements incidental to permanent parking lots
shall not be required.

         There shall be two (2} three (3) types of interim parking as follows:

(a) Temporary special event parking, and
(b) Short-term event parking-And
    Interim special use parking.

916.2.1. Temporary special event parking. Temporary special event parking on unimproved interim
parking lots, as defined herein, shall only be permitted pursuant to Class I Special Permit and only in
conjunction with an approved special event that requires the additional parking to be accommodated
on said lot(s).

916.2.2. Short-term event parking facilities. Short-term event parking facilities shall be permitted as a
conditional use on non-residentially zoned lots, within a cix hundred (600) one thousand (1000) foot
radius of the major public facility they are intended to serve., pursuant to a Class II Special Permit
subject to the applicable criteria in Section 1305,                                             , and only in
conjunction with major public facilities such as major sports facilities, arenas., exhibition centers,
performing arts centers and any other such major public facility whose scale and operation warrant the
use of interim parking facilities on an event-by-event basis versus daily year-round use.


a one y ar period. Renewals may only be granted by the City Manager upon findings and
recommendations by the Director of the Department of Planning and-Zoning that such renewals are in
the best interest of the City for reasons related to insufficient parking within proximity of a major
facility;                                        e - - - e                e e . At such time that renewals

with uses such as special entertainment districts, government facilities or institutional uses whose
scale and operation warrant the use of interim parking facilities on a daily year-round use rather than
special event venues.

Renewals may only be granted by the City Manager upon findings and recommendations by the
Director of the Department of Planning that such renewals are in the best interest of the City for

reasons related to insufficient parking within proximity of the s pecial uses. At such time that renewals
are granted, the City Manager may include conditions to mitigate safety concerns that arise as
reported by the NET Administrator, Code Enforcement or the Miami Police Department that pertain to
the particular parking facility in question. Parking spaces provided on this type of interim parking
facility shall not be counted toward meeting required parking for any such special use they serve,
unless such parking facility is in full code compliance.

916.3. Considerations and standards.

        In order to mitigate any potentially adverse effects that unimproved interim parking lots may
have on adjacent areas, all such facilities intended to be utilized as
described in sections 916.2.2. and 916.2.3. above, shall be required to maintain a park-like
appearance to consist of fully sodded lots over an approved stabilized, below grade, pervious system
or any other type of system which provides a honeycomb type stabilized base underneath the lot and
therefore allows for parking on the sod while not impeding drainage.

       In lieu of providing a park-like appearance as described above, a parking facility may be paved
upon approval by the city of a sufficient alternate drainage system.

        Interim parking facilities may also be used for the temporary staging of miscellaneous
equipment and/or vehicles necessary for any of the functions associated with an approved special
event or an activity taking place in a major public facility subject to all applicable regulations and
special permits listed above.

       All interim parking and staging activities permissible under this section shall be limited in
duration to a time specified in the special permit obtained. The duration shall run concurrently with the
event or activity requiring said parking or staging, and may be expanded on a limited basis to allow for
preparation, disassembly and activities related to that specific event or activity.

        In addition to the considerations and standards listed generally in section 1305 of this
ordinance, Class l and Class II Special Permits for interim parking facilities shall also consider the
following:

(a) Use of traffic monitors to facilitate vehicular flow into and out of such facilities during major
events;
(b) Use of specialized lighting features to ensure safety when such facilities are proposed for evening
use; and
(c) Use of perimeter fencing to assist in the control of access points and security of proposed lots
while not in use.
(d) Surface interim parking lots, which are located within the SD-5, SD-6, SD-7, SD-20 or designated
CRA areas of Southeast Overtown/Park West or Omni, :hall may also be subject required to comply
with the conditions and criteria set forth in Section 917.3.2. as conditions to the special permits
required herein or as conditions of time extensions g ranted by the City Manager.
(e) All such interim parking lots may also be required to comply with any design standards and
guidelines that may beinplace for the specified area in which the parking lot is located (i.e. uniform
signage, fencing and attendant kiosk standards).

Renewals for temporary special event parking or short-term event parking may be issued annually by
the City Manager upon findings and recommendations by the Director of the Department of Planning
that such renewals are in the best interest of the City for reasons related to insufficient parking within
proximity of the special uses. Renewals may include conditions to mitigate safety concerns that arise
as reported by the NET Administrator, Code Enforcement or the Miami Police Department that pertain
to the particular parking facility in question. Parking spaces provided on this type of interim parking
facility shall not be counted toward meeting required parking for any such special use they serve.
unless such parking facility is in full code compliance.

916.3.   Considerations and standards.

        in order to mitigate any potentially adverse effects that unimproved interim parking lots may
have on adjacent areas, all such facilities'intended to be utilized as short term event parking, as
described in sections 916.2.2. and 916.2.3. above, shall be required to maintain a park-like
appearance to consist of fully sodded lots over an approved stabilized, below grade,. pervious system
or any other type of system which provides a honeycomb type stabilized base underneath the lot and
therefore allows for parking on the sod while not impeding drainage.

      In lieu of providing a park-like appearance as described above, a parking facility may be paved
upon approval by.the city of a sufficient alternate drainage system.

        Interim parking facilities may also be used for the temporary staging of miscellaneous
equipment and/or vehicles necessary for any of the functions associated with an approved special
event or an activity taking place in a major public facility subject to all applicable regulations and
special permits listed above.

       All interim parking and staging activities permissible under this section shall be limited in
duration to a time specified in the special permit obtained. The duration shall run concurrently with the
event or activity requiring said parking or staging, and may be expanded on a limited basis to allow for
preparation, disassembly and activities related to that specific event or activity.

        In addition to the considerations and standards listed generally in section 1305 of this
ordinance, Class I and Class II Special Permits for interim parking facilities shall also consider the
following:

(a) Use of traffic monitors to facilitate vehicular flow into and out of such facilities during major
events;
(b) Use of specialized lighting features to ensure safety when such facilities are proposed for evening
use; and
(c) Use of perimeter fencing to assist in the control of access points and security of proposed lots
while not in use.
(d) Surface interim parking lots, which are located within the SD-5, SD-6, SD-7, SD-20 or designated
CRA areas of Southeast Overtown/Park West or Omni, chat{ may also be subject required to comply ,
with the conditions and criteria set forth in Section 917.3.2. as conditions to the special permits
required herein or as conditions of time extensions granted by the City Manager.
(e) All such interim parking lots may also be required to comply with any design standards and
guidelines that may be in place for the specified area in which the parking lot is located (i.e. uniform
signage, fencing and attendant kiosk standards).

City of Miami                                       Page 2                                  Printed on 3/10/2009
         annually by the City Manager upon findings and recommendations by the Director of the
         Department of Planning that such renewals are in the best interest of the City for reasons
         related to insufficient parking within proximity of the special uses. Renewals may include
         conditions to mitigate safety concerns that arise as reported by the NET Administrator, Code
         Enforcement or the Miami Police Department that pertain to the particular parking facility in
         question. Parking spaces provided under this type of interim parking facility shall not be
         counted toward meeting required parking for any such special use they serve, unless such
         parking facility is in full code compliance.

         916.3. Considerations and standards.

                 In order to mitigate any potentially adverse effects that unimproved interim parking lots
         may have on adjacent areas, all such facilities intended to be utilized as short term event
         parking, as described in sections 916.2.2. and 916.2.3. above, shall be required to maintain a
         park-like appearance to consist of fully sodded lots over an approved stabilized, below grade,
         pervious system or any other type of system which provides a honeycomb type stabilized base
         underneath the lot and therefore allows for parking on the sod while not impeding drainage.

                  In lieu of providing a park-like appearance as described above, a parking facility may be
         paved or consist of any combination of paving, gravel and grass upon approval by the city of a
         sufficient alternate drainage system. Except for temporary special event parking (as defined
         above) associated with a Class I Special Permit, all other interim parking shall comply with
         applicable ADA requirements as set forth in the Florida Building Code, as amended from time
         to time.

                 Interim parking facilitica may also be used for the temporary staging of miscellaneous
         equipment and/or vehicles necessary for any of the functions associated with an approved
         special event or an activity taking place in a major public facility subject to all applicable
         regulations and special permits listed above.

                   All interim parking and staging activities permissible under this section shall be limited in
         duration to a time specified in the special permit obtained. The duration shall run concurrently
         with the event or activity requiring said parking or staging, and may be expanded on a limited
         basis to allow for preparation, disassembly and activities related to that specific event or
         activity.

                  In addition to the considerations and standards listed generally in section 1305 of this
         ordinance, Class I and Class II Special Permits for interim parking facilities shall also consider
         the following:

        ,(a) Use of traffic monitors to facilitate vehicular flow into and out of such facilities during major
         events;
         (b) Use of specialized lighting features to ensure safety when such facilities are proposed for
         evening use; and
         (c) Use of perimeter fencing to assist in the control of access points and security of proposed
         lots while not in use.
         (d) Surface interim parking lots, which are located within the SD-5, SD-6, SD-7, SD-20 or
         designated CRA areas of Southeast Overtown/Park West or Omni, shall may also be subject
         required to comply with the conditions and criteria set forth in Section 917.3.2. as conditions to
         the special permits required herein or as conditions of time extensions granted by the City
         Manager.
         (e) All such interim parking lots may also be required to comply with any design standards and

          guidelines that may be in place for the specified area in which the parking lot is located (i.e.
          uniform signage, fencing and attendant kiosk standards).




             Section 3. If any section, part of section, paragraph, clause, phrase or word of this
          Ordinance is declared invalid, the remaining provisions of this Ordinance shall not be affected.

              Section 4. This Ordinance shall become effective thirty (30) days after approval at second
         reading, unless vetoed by the Mayor within ten days from the date it was passed and adopted.
         If the Mayor vetoes this Ordinance, it shall become effective immediately upon override of the
         veto by the City Commission.{2}
