Zoning Review Committee & Planning Board Workshop


Drainage

  • A completely impervious parking lot relies on drainage structures, i.e. piping, retention ponds

  • Allowing for some impervious parking or landscaped drainage swales can reduce the size of built drainage needed


Pervious Parking


Why Landscape Parking Lots?

  • Helps alleviate the amount of heat a parking lot gives off “heat islands”

  • Can go hand in hand with drainage, the more pervious areas= the less drainage structures that may need to be built

  • Visual buffers

  • Traffic calming


Different Locations for Landscaping

Can also act

as drainage

swale if at

proper

elevation


Landscaping on Perimeter Only


Example of Change


Different Strategies for Landscaping


Landscaped Parking Lots


Open Parking Lot


Why encourage parking to side and rear?

  • Allows the building to get the attention as opposed to a parking lot

  • Smaller curbcut =

    • traffic has designated areas to access parking lot

    • More easily allows for sidewalks and pedestrian access


Parking on the Side of the Building


Parking shown to front and side of buildings, landscaping acts as buffer


Parking Spaces Layout

Not Ideal:

Pedestrians

than need to

walk through

parking

spaces

Ideal:

Creates more

of a walkway

for pedestrians


  • Pro:

  • Parking on side and back

  • of building

  • Sidewalk

  • Small curbcuts

  • Landscaping

  • Angled parking

  • Lines well delineated


  • Pro:

  • Parking to side and rear of building

  • Landscaping in front

  • Sidewalks

  • Small curbcuts

  • Lines well delineated

  • Angled parking


  • Pro:

  • Parking to the side of building

  • Lines are visible


  • Pro:

  • Delineated curbcuts

  • Some landscaping

  • Con:

  • -Parking mainly in front of building

  • -Traffic flow confusing

  • -Difficult to see lines


  • Pro:

  • Parking to the side and back,

  • not in front of building

  • Flow in parking lot

  • Con:

  • -No lines since material is dirt


  • Pro:

  • Parking to side and back of building

  • Lines well delineated

  • Con:

  • -Open curbcut

  • -No landscaping


  • Pro:

  • Curbcuts delineated

  • Lines well maintained

  • Con:

  • -Parking all in front


  • Pro:

  • Most parking to rear and side

  • Well delineated lines

  • Small curbcuts with landscaping

  • in front

  • Con:

  • -No designated areas for

  • pedestrians


  • Pro:

  • Landscape buffer in front

  • Landscaping within the

  • parking lot

  • Small curbcuts

  • Well delineated lines


  • Pro:

  • Parking to the side and

  • back of building

  • Landscape buffer from

  • street to building

  • Lines well delineated

  • Good traffic flow

  • Con:

  • -Sidewalk access would be

  • beneficial


  • Pro:

  • Landscape buffering from street

  • Parking to side of building

  • Small curbcut

  • Con:

  • -Lines need to be better delineated

  • -Sidewalk would be beneficial
