An Ordinance to Provide Additional Regulation for the Location of Curb Cuts and Driveways in the Village
Introduced by: Mr. Tettenhorst
WHEREAS, Council of the Village of Riverlea has determined that the further regulation of the location and size of curb cuts, drive ways and other access areas from public streets onto private property will promote the health, safety and welfare of the residents of the Village;
Now, Therefore, be It Ordained by the Council of the Village of Riverlea, State of Ohio:
Section l. Regulation of Driveways and Curb Cuts. That the following new Section 151.023 of the Codified Ordinances of the Village of Riverlea is hereby adopted:
§151.023 Driveways and Curb Cuts
No person shall cut or demolish any street curb, or construct any driveway or driveway approach from a public street within the Village, except in accordance with the requirements of Section 151.022, Section 151.023 and any other applicable Section of the Riverlea Codified Ordinances, or without the prior written permit of the Street Commissioner of the Village or the prior written permit of the Mayor of the Village or his or her designee. As a condition of any such permit, the Street Commissioner, Mayor or designee may require the provision of a bond in accordance with Section 151.085 of the Riverlea Codified Ordinances.
Each driveway shall be located and designed in a manner that provides for the safety of motorists and pedestrians.
A driveway serving a residential property, parking area or lot shall be regulated as follows:
Curb cuts. The location of curb cuts or points of ingress/egress shall be restricted to promote traffic safety, and limited to one per single- or multi-family dwelling located on any lot or parcel of property that contains 100 feet or less of street frontage on the street to which the drive gives access, as measured at the set back line. A second curb cut may be permitted by the Planning Commission for properties containing more than 100 feet of street frontage on the street to which the drive gives access in connection with the issuance of a certificate of appropriateness for such lot or parcel. In the event the lot or parcel for which a second curb cut exists is subdivided or otherwise altered such that it no longer contains more than 100 feet of frontage, the owners thereof shall thereafter remove one drive and curb cut after application therefor to the Planning Commission and the issuance of a certificate of appropriateness for such removal. Any permitted second curb cut shall be subject to the following requirements:
A maximum of 30% of linear curb distance along the lot frontage may be removed for driveway curb cuts except as otherwise limited in this section.
The design function and appearance of driveways leading from an additional curb cut shall be compatible with and complementary to the building it serves as well as the surrounding neighborhood by the use of consistent paving materials.
The curb cuts shall be located to provide adequate distance from adjacent properties or intersecting streets to prevent vehicle and pedestrian conflicts. The placement of an additional curb cut shall not conflict with existing safety or utility or infrastructure improvements including but not limited to traffic control devices, curb inlets, manholes, yard drains, meter sets, and valves.
Setbacks. Driveways shall be set back at least five feet from a side lot line. Where a single common drive is provided for two adjoining lots no driveway setback is required along the common property line.
Curb line. All driveways shall have a minimum width of ten feet and a maximum width of 20 feet, in addition to two, 3-foot flares, one on each side, measured at the curb line.
Right-of-way line. All driveways shall have a minimum width of ten feet and a maximum width of 20 feet as measured at the public street right-of-way.
Design of Driveways and landscaping.
No curb cut or driveway on land located within the Village shall hereafter constructed, altered, enlarged or modified except after issuance of a certificate of appropriateness therefor in accordance with Section 151.070 of the Riverlea Codified Ordinances. In reviewing an application for any such construction, alteration, modification or enlargement the Planning Commission may consider, among other things the materials used and the landscaping to be provided in connection with the improvement. The primary pavement material on driveways and any driveway additions shall be identical. Approved primary pavement materials include asphalt, concrete, brick, concrete pavers, colored and imprinted concrete, or natural stone pavers or flagstones. The use of gravel as a driveway material is not permitted. Secondary materials such as brick or stone may be used for driveway borders or insets.
Front yard lot coverage. Lot coverage in the yard space between the public street right-of-way, side property lines, and building setback lines shall not exceed 30%.
Section 2. Effective Date. That this Ordinance shall take effect from and after the earliest date permitted by law.
Section 3. Open Meetings. This Council finds and determines that all formal actions of this Council concerning and relating to the passage of this Ordinance were taken in an open meeting of this Council and that all deliberations of this Council that resulted in those formal actions were in meetings open to the public in compliance with law.
