Sec. 52-35. Ground Surface.

 

(a) All parking stations and residential parking spaces, inclusive of all access drives and all turning or maneuvering areas, established either after September 10, 1951 or after annexation by the City, shall be surfaced with an all-weather, dustless material such as asphaltic or Portland cement concrete.

 

(b) Exceptions to subsection (a) of this section are as follows:

(2) Interior limited-access drives within lots located in industrial zones.

located on a tract of land of at least three acres or more.

 

(4) Interior limited-access drives located within farms.

 

(5) Parking stations or driveways abutting at least one unimproved road or street so long as such road or street remains unimproved. Upon the
