The Mayor and Common Council of the City of Milwaukee do ordain as follows:

 

Part 1. Section 84-20-1 of the code is amended to read:

 

84-20. Parking Lots or Places.

1. DEFINITIONS.

a. "Parking place" [[shall be construed to mean]] >>means<< any garage or other building or any plot, piece or parcel of land in or upon which a business is conducted of storing motor vehicles where the owner or person storing such vehicle is charged a fee, but excluding the renting of private garages or private parking space and parking places that have parking spaces for 15 cars or less.

b. "Person" [[shall be construed to mean]] >>means<<  any individual, partnership, firm, association or corporation.

 

Part 2. Section 84-20-1-a to b of the code is renumbered 84-20-1-c to d.

 

Part 2. Section 84-20-1-a, b and e of the code is created to read:

 

a. “Downtown parking place” means a parking place within a C9 zoning district, or any surface parking facility serving a surface transportation provider or terminal.

b. “Event parking place” means a downtown parking place operating principally to provide temporary parking for events and festivals.

e. “Security lighting” means natural or artificial lighting producing a minimum of 0.5-foot candle in horizontal luminance and 0.25-foot candle in vertical luminance, an average of 2.5-foot candle in horizontal luminance with a maximum to minimum uniformity ratio of 15:1.

 

Part 3. Section 84-20-4-e of the code is repealed and recreated to read:

 

4. PLAN OF OPERATION.

e. Plans the applicant has to provide security for the premises. Security plans for downtown parking places, except event parking places, shall include the following:

A security video surveillance system shall include drones or robots if appropriate.
