113 Bus Review       Business Rep           n/a         Is there a different way to determine the Mixed Use Corridors? For       General support for reduced parking           As proposed

                                                        transportation on a given street (e.g., Snelling), then it might be an   particularly in commercial corridors where

                                                        shouldn't be a Mixed-Use Corridor.

116 Council Office   City Official/                     Consider allowing a mixed-use corridor reduction based on type of
                     Commissioner                       use. For example affordable housing vs. an employment center like

118 MCCD             Developer                          A 10% reduction for mixed-use corridors may not be enough for
                                                        some small businesses on transit friendly streets with customers
                                                        who don't drive (e.g., a corner grocery on Rice St)
119 Planning         City Official/                     Why not use the term 'transit street' instead of 'mixed use corridor'?
    Commission       Commissioner                       Isn't that really the point?

120 West 7th CC      Resident                           Using an additional "mixed use corridor" reduction for minimum
                                                        parking is a good idea in underdeveloped commercial corridors like

                                                        of the proposed reductions to use requirements, since parking is
                                                        already tight. It's better to use it on corridors where very strong

122 Staff Work       City Staff                         A Mixed Use Corridor reduction is a good idea. The 2030 Land

                                                        should be designed to support more multi-modal transportation
                                                        options and therefore less single-occupancy vehicle parking.

     SECTION 63.308. MANEUVERING LANES
136 Como Park        Property               n/a        Most of these alley right-of-ways are only 15 feet in width. I see       Concerns raised about challenges in the       Update
    Pavillion        Owner                             that you want to eliminate some of the curb cuts and I think it is a     existing code with entrances and              Maneuvering Lane
                                                       good idea to also cut down on the amount of impervious area.             maneuvering lanes for properties sharing an   and Entry/Exit
                                                       One way to cut down on the curb cuts is to allow some of the             alley with residential uses.                  language to allow
                                                       parking lots to enter from the alley. One way to approach it would                                                     access to small
                                                       be to change the lead in wording of 63.308 to exclude parking lots                                                     parking facilities via
                                                       coming directly off of an alley but to me this then would waive the                                                    an alley
                                                       requirement of having some space behind the cars which is
                                                       needed. You could eliminate the [suggested] language for 63.305
                                                       and insert additional wording could be added to 63.308 essentially
                                                       cutting the maneuvering lane to one-half the specified amount in
                                                       63.308. An example would be to add another sentence at the end
                                                       of the section which could read as follows:

                                                       "If entrance into a parking space in a parking lot comes directly off
                                                       of an alley, the width of the maneuvering lane shall only be one-half
                                                       (1/2) of the distance set forth in 63.308."

    SECTION 63.310. ENTRANCES AND EXITS
137 Como Park      Property                n/a        I think [the proposed parking revisions] is a positive step forward        Concerns raised about challenges in the       Update
    Pavillion      Owner                              but I would also like to suggest some changes to the ordinances            existing code with entrances and              Maneuvering Lane
                                                      with respect to areas with mixed-use such as Snelling Avenue               maneuvering lanes for properties sharing an   and Entry/Exit
                                                      where you have many businesses with lots that back up to alleys            alley with residential uses.                  language to allow
                                                      that service both residential and commercial and/or backup to                                                            access to small
                                                      residential property.                                                                                                    parking facilities via
138 Como Park      Property                           Code Section 63.310 raises many problems for small parking lots                                                          an alley
    Pavillion      Owner                              where entrance is desired to come off of an alley. The first one
                                                      has to deal with 63.310 (c) in that entrance and exits to and from all
                                                      parking facilities in non residential property shall be 25 feet from the
                                                      adjoining residential property. Although previously this has not
                                                      been enforced for small lots coming off of an alley, it is on the
                                                      books and should be relaxed to allow entrance from an alley for
                                                      smaller parking lots. Many older alley right of ways are only 15 feet
                                                      in width. Thus, if this is technically enforced it essentially precludes
                                                      any parking lots from alleys in most areas of the city without a
                                                      variance because you could never have 25' distance to an entrance
                                                      to a parking facility from an alley adjoining residential property
                                                      because most right-of-ways are 15 to 20 feet. This rule has not
                                                      been enforced in the past and should be changed to permit small
                                                      parking lots to enter the lot from alleys under 63.310(F)(4). I would
                                                      reduce the number of feet to 15 feet for parking lot entrances from
                                                      alleys.
    SECTION 63.311. WHEEL STOPS
139 Como Park      Property                n/a         In section 63.311 (Wheel Stops) there seems potentially to be      One comment identifying a language conflict          Clarify wording for
    Pavillion      Owner                              some conflict in the wording with 63.305. The wording in 63.311 is between Minimum Layout Dimensions and                 Wheelstops and
                                                      as follows: "Provisions shall be made to prevent vehicles from      Wheelstops.                                          Minimum Layout

                                                      required landscaping that allows up to two (2) feet of vehicle                                                           vehicle overhang
                                                      overhang." Do you allow 2' of a required parking space to permit                                                         into landscaped
                                                      overhang or do you not? Just thought this may need to be clarified                                                       areas
                                                      because it wasn't clear to me what this language meant. Does the
                                                      above language mean that if I am going to have an 18' deep stall,
                                                      the physical dimensions only need to be 16 feet because I can then
                                                      count the 2 feet of overhang? If so, then you will end up with more
                                                      green space.
