a.

The comptroller shall review, according to a schedule to be determined by the comptroller, all residential parking permit zones created before the effective date of this ordinance that either: (1) are less than three blocks in size, or (2) restrict parking for 24 hours a day.

b.

Upon initiating such a review, the comptroller shall notify and solicit comments from each alderman in whose ward part or all of the residential parking permit zone under review is located, and shall also notify the residents in the residential parking permit zone under review who are holders of the city wheel tax license emblem issued pursuant to Section

3-56-070" destination-id="JD_3-56-070">3-56-070 of this Code.  Such notice shall describe the geographical area and time periods of parking restriction of the zone under review, and shall describe the petition procedure set forth in subsection (c) of this section for voluntary revocation or time period reduction of the zone.

In conducting his review, the comptroller shall determine whether:

1.

At least 80 percent of the occupied frontage, at ground level, of each block in the residential parking permit zone under review is in use for residence purposes.

2.

At least 75 percent of available on-street parking in the residential parking permit zone under review is being used during the time periods that parking is restricted, as determined by a parking study.

If the comptroller concludes that both of the above conditions are met, the comptroller shall recommend to the city council that the zone be continued.  If the comptroller concludes that both of the above conditions are not met, the comptroller shall recommend to the city council that the zone be revoked or modified.  A vote of the city council shall be required to revoke or modify a residential parking permit zone pursuant to this section.

c.

Subject to the approval of the city council, a residential parking permit zone created before the effective date of this ordinance may be voluntarily revoked by submitting to the comptroller a petition, requesting revocation of part or all of the zone and signed and dated by at least 51 percent of the residents in the zone who are holders of the city wheel tax license emblem issued pursuant to Section

3-56-070" destination-id="JD_3-56-070">3-56-070 of this Code.  If the petition requests revocation of only part of a residential parking permit zone, the size of the remaining zone must be at least a block, and if more than one block, all blocks in the remaining zone must be contiguous.  Any signature on the petition, to be valid, must be dated within a year of the date the petition is submitted to the comptroller.

Subject to the approval of the city council, the time periods that parking is restricted in a residential parking permit zone created before the effective date of this ordinance may be voluntarily reduced by submitting to the comptroller a petition, requesting a reduction in such time periods and signed and dated by at least 51 percent of the residents in the zone who are holders of the city wheel tax license emblem issued pursuant to Section 3-56-070 of this Code.  Any signature on the petition, to be valid, must be dated within a year of the date the petition is submitted to the comptroller.

d.

Upon the revocation or modification of a residential parking permit zone pursuant to this section, the commissioner of transportation shall remove or modify the pertinent parking zone signage, as appropriate.

e.

As used in this section, the term “block” shall mean both sides of any street between street intersections.
