The off-street parking space requirement for a multi-family dwelling may be satisfied through an agreement that provides parking located on another multi-family dwelling’s development site only if the party requesting approval demonstrates that, after the agreement is executed, both development sites will meet the current code’s minimum off-street parking space requirement. Each parking space provided through a city approved agreement must have a permanent sign of at least 1 square foot that indicates the name or address of the multi-family dwelling for which the parking is reserved.

(b) Except as provided in EC 9.2751(15)(b)(3) Driveways and Parking Areas in R-3 and R-4, parking areas may be located in required setbacks only as permitted in EC 9.6745 Setbacks – Intrusions Permitted.

This standard does not apply to existing parking areas that are not expanded.

(b) Regardless of the limitations contained in EC 9.6410(2)(a) above, at least 2 parking spaces may be constructed on a development site.

(3) Minimum Number of Required Off-Street Parking Spaces.

(a) A parking reduction of up to 50% of the minimum requirement in the /ND overlay zone and up to 25 percent of the minimum requirement in all other zones is allowed as a right of development. In addition to these reductions, a parking reduction of 25% of the minimum required off-street parking is allowed for shared off-street parking. (See EC 9.6430)

(b) For any use located in the C-1 zone:

1. No parking spaces are necessary if 8 or fewer parking spaces are otherwise required.

2. If 9 or more parking spaces are otherwise required, the required parking can be reduced by 4 spaces if the business contributes towards providing urban amenities such as benches, low level lights, a bus shelter, or other open space improvements in the area.

(c) Motor vehicle parking at Autzen Stadium Complex shall comply with:

1. So long as a city-approved intergovernmental agreement incorporating a transportation demand management plan for Autzen Stadium complex is in effect a minimum of 4,749 vehicle parking spaces are required to be provided on the Autzen Stadium Complex site or within 1000’ of that site. All required parking shall be owned by the state of Oregon, except through a city-approved agreement that binds the parking area to the Autzen Stadium Complex.

2. If the above referenced intergovernmental agreement is not in effect, the Autzen Stadium Complex shall be required to provide 1 vehicle parking space for each 4.4 seats.

(d) When calculating the parking requirements for an outdoor restaurant, up to 20 outdoor seats shall be exempt from the calculations.

(e) The off-street parking requirements of Table 9.6410 Required Off-Street Motor Vehicle Parking do not apply to a new building, building addition, or building alteration owned by the Eugene School District 4J and located on the Edison Elementary School site (map/tax lot 18-03-05-13-08300) if a proposed Transportation Demand Management (TDM) plan has been approved by the city.
