Two copies of individual Keystone Library Renovation site plan
pencil

Procedure
In this activity you will create a preliminary site plan.

1. Research Chapter 159: Unified Land Development Ordinance (UDO)


found in Title XV: Land Usage in the City of Noblesville, Indiana Code of
Ordinances for regulations related to parking. You can access the Code of
Ordinances (COO) at www.amlegal.com (choose the library tab, select Indiana,
and click on the link to Noblesville). Based on your research, answer the following
questions. Document the section of the code in which you found each answer.
How many parking spaces are required for the Keystone Library?
Show your calculation. (COO Table 9, Section 159.142 or UDO Table
10.0.3.B)
50 parking spaces
What distance must parking lots be set back from the property line?
((UDO Section 4.B.1)
20 ft
Assuming a 90 degree parking angle, what size parking spaces
should be used? (COO Table 10, Section 159.143 or UDO Table 10.0.4.A)
Stall width: 9 feet
What aisle width should be used? (COO Table 10, Section 159.143
or UDO Table 10.0.4.A)
aisle width: 24 feet
Describe the requirements on driveway (ingress and egress)
location from adjacent property lines and intersections. (COO Section
159.143 or UDO Section 4.C.2)
Non-residential driveway entrances or exits shall be at least 25 feet from an adjoining
residential property line; ten feet from an adjoining non-residential property line; or 45
feet from an intersection.
What is the maximum driveway width that can be used for a non-
residential development? (COO Section 159.143 or UDO Section 4.C.2)
An entrance/exit divider not to exceed ten feet in width shall not be counted towards
the width limit. Non- residential driveways are limited to one per street frontage and
shall be approved by the Engineer having jurisdiction thereof.
What is the drainage runoff requirement for parking and driveway
areas? (COO Section 159.143 or UDO Section 4.D.2)
Such parking areas shall be graded and properly drained in such a manner that there
will be no free flow of water onto either adjacent property or public sidewalks. Any
runoff generated by such improved areas shall be disposed of in appropriate drainage

facilities as per the Noblesville Standards and the Stormwater Technical Standards.
Is parking lot lighting required? What is the requirement? (COO
Section 159.143 or UDO Section 4.D.4)
Parking Lot Lighting. A minimum of one foot-candle of illumination shall be provided
throughout the parking lot.
How many accessible parking spaces are required? (COO Table
11, Section 159.144 or UDO Table 10.0.5)
accessible patient parking at outpatient facilities must equal no less than 10% of the
total required parking spaces, and facilities which specialize in treatment or services for
persons with mobility impairments must provide for patient use accessible parking
equaling no less than 20% of the total required parking spaces.
Is a loading area required for the library? (COO Section 159.147 or
UDO Section 8.A)
Yes
How many loading berths are required for the library? (COO Table
13, Section 159.147 or UDO Section 8.B)
1 berth for 12,000-120,00 square feet. And then 1 additional Berth for each
additional 120,000 square feet.
In terms of parking lot landscaping requirements, what class of
parking lot is required for the library? (Section 159.184)
Class B.
Describe the overall interior parking lot landscape requirements.
Planting Islands. In some cases where parking is required for a use, a certain percentage
of the paved area must be maintained as landscape areas which include landscape islands
and peninsulas. To function as an "LID Stormwater BMP", the landscape island or
peninsula shall be at a lower grade than the surrounding pavement and curbing shall allow
drainage from pavement to enter into recessed landscape areas. For the purposes of
calculating this requirement the following table shall be employed.
- This basically means that you have to have islands and special sections to
balance all of the drainage.
What are the requirements for single row parking landscape islands
and peninsulas?
All single row parking landscape islands and peninsulas shall be a minimum of 180 square
feet in area with a minimum width of nine feet measured from back of curb to back of curb
or edge of pavement. Each island and peninsula shall contain a minimum of one canopy
tree and five evergreen or deciduous shrubs, or ornamental grasses. If the landscape island
is intended to function as an "LID Stormwater BMP", then the plant material should be
able to tolerate and thrive at various depths and lengths of inundation. Refer to Appendix
H-3 "Stormwater Technical Standards Manual."
What are the requirements for double row parking landscape
islands and peninsulas?
All double row parking landscape islands shall be a minimum of 240 square feet in area
with a minimum width of nine feet measured from back of curb to back of curb or edge
of pavement. Each island and peninsula shall contain a minimum of two canopy trees
and ten evergreen or deciduous shrubs, or ornamental grasses.

Where can one find the perimeter parking lot landscaping


requirements? You may need to reference this information later.
Table 12.0.5.D.2.
What other landscaping requirements are contained in the code of
ordinances?
Perimeter Parking Lot Landscaping Requirements
Building Base Landscaping Requirements
Describe the requirements for trash receptacle enclosures. (Section
159.187)
An enclosure for trash containers, recycling containers, garbage containers, building
material containers or other large metal containers. Three sides of the enclosure shall
be constructed of building materials matching the facade of the on-site principal building
with the fourth side being screened by a metal gate or other similar materials. The
enclosure shall completely screen the containers from view and measure a minimum of
six feet in height or two above the size of the container whichever is greater.
2. Create a site bubble diagram to represent preliminary locations for the
parking lot, ingress and egress, trash receptacle enclosure, loading area, and
required landscaping.

3. Study your Keystone Library Renovation site plan. Select a preliminary


location and orientation for the parking lot. Based on your code research, sketch
a preliminary design for the parking lot and pedestrian walkways to scale on the
site plan. Include ingress and egress, the required number of spaces (including
accessible spaces), aisles, lighting, and landscaping. Taking into consideration
the existing topography, use arrows to indicate the anticipated drainage paths.
Do not incorporate the parking lot in your 3D model at this time.
