It's been 50 years since I diagramed a sentence...I'm stuck on this one ...in Pennsylvania ...
Some quick zoning ordinance changes are being rushed into place...they only apply to Zone B ,, a tiny little buffer zone ..and that part is crystal clear ....but diagram the following and help me guess what it means in English..thanks
" off street parking for retail businesses shall be calculated at one per 600 square feet within zone B "
I read it to mean that sentence does not address residential parking . And I take it to mean say a retail hardware store of 6000 sq ft must provide for 6 parking spaces and said spaces are to be in zone B .....spaces in a remote lot 1/2 mile away in zone Q do not count as to meeting the 1 per 600 calculation.
Some other other rule in some entirely different section applicable to all zones allows one to count parking up to 600' away towards ones quota
I read it in context that 6000 sq ft hardware store may count other parking it has in zone B if its within 600 '
And some other section covering all zones lays out detailed parking minimums ..lets say 1 per 300 sq ft of retail store .... I read this in context that while a hardware store of that size needs12 overall, 6 spaces in that zone within 600'' the remaining 6 could be a zone away and very different difficult to access due to the way roads run just so long as it's 600 ' as the crow flies since the 600' ordnance does not specify it must be some available walk path.
Did I forget the sentence diagram rules....?
