Charles City making parking changes for redevelopment housing

Proposed change puts Charles City inline with other city ordinances

Charles City, Iowa – Parking requirements are changing in Charles City only for redevelopment housing such as the renovation to the 500 North Grand Building.

City engineer John Fallis says the change comes from a recommendation from the planning and zoning committee.


Only redevelopment housing projects with limited off-street parking  and low volume roads qualify, according to Fallis.

He says the city’s investigation determined their design standard allowed for more parking spaces per dwelling than other area ordinances.


The council voted to move from 2.2 spaces per dwelling to 1.5 spaces per dwelling.  There will be a public hearing on the recommended changes May 19.
