Definition: A space or structure that is used to house or store institutional vehicles.
Description: Includes structures, buildings, and spaces generally called parking decks, garages, boathouses, and airplane hangars. The definition of “vehicle” is broadly interpreted here to include forklifts, moving equipment, lawn equipment, and other powered transport devices or equipment, as well as automobiles and trucks. Also included is the covered circulation area required for the “vehicles” to enter, maneuver while within, and exit the parking structures.
Limitations: This category does not include unroofed surface parking lots. It also does not include structures that house or store farm vehicles and implements (see Code 560). (See Parking Structure, section 3.2.10, for suggested classification of parking structures.)
