The results are presented of a study that examined and compiled data on parking generation and geometric requirements used by small- to medium-sized southeastern cities. A questionnaire was used to collect data and solicit copies of policies and ordinances that outlined off-street parking and geometric requirements. Parking generation data is discussed, and requirements are compared with national data. It is noted that off-street parking requirements and the design of off-street facilites are in the domain of local government, and therefore, the required number of parking spaces and design of off-street facilites can vary from community to community. The variation in geometric data is significant, and design standards can have a significant impact on the cost of operating off-street parking facilites. Off-street design requirements should rely on physical restrictions and performance data.
