    Loading zones, best practice?

    I am conducting research for an eventual update to Loading Zones/areas. Does anyone know where a best practice may be?

    Loading Zones

    from the Clearwater CDC:

    Section 3-1406. Off-street loading and vehicle stacking spaces.
    A. Off-street loading:
    1. Design: Off-street loading spaces shall measure not less than 12 feet in width and 35 feet in length, exclusive of aisle and maneuvering space, and shall have a vertical clearance of at least 14 feet. Off-street loading shall be strategically located as near as possible to a service entrance and designed to accommodate all vehicles onsite without obstructing aisles or parking spaces.

    At times like this, you have to ask yourself, "WWJDD?"

    It has been a best practice to not require loading spaces but instead to adopt standards that apply when loading spaces are provided, if they are provided.

    Exactly. I thing WalMart has a better idea of how many spaces they need than any zoning code.
