The Traffic and Transportation Administrator is hereby authorized to determine the location of commercial loading zones pursuant to Section 17.22.030 and issue annual permits for said commercial loading zones for commercial vehicles upon application for a permit for such a zone. An annual fee of two dollars per foot of curb line requested by the applicant for such loading zone shall be collected by the Traffic and Transportation Administrator prior to the issuance of said permit. Every such permit shall expire on the 31st day of December of the year for which the permit was issued and for the following year application for issuance of an annual permit shall be submitted on or before the said 31st day of December. In the event that on or before January 1st of any year a permit has not been issued for any commercial loading zone in existence now or then, such zone shall cease to be a commercial loading zone and the Traffic and Transportation Administrator shall remove the signs designating such zone as a commercial loading zone. Provided, however, that in the event the Traffic and Transportation Administrator has not caused the signs to be removed then upon payment of a ten-dollar fee for reinstatement of the zone as a commercial loading zone and upon payment of the annual permit fee the Traffic and Transportation Administrator may reinstate the zone as a commercial loading zone. Provided, however, that in the event the Traffic and Transportation Administrator has caused the signs to be removed, then the initial installation and inspection provisions of Section 17.22.030 shall apply.

17.22.020 Loading zone permits--Application.

Applications made for a commercial loading zone not heretofore designated as such or a zone from which the signs were removed for any lawful cause shall be made to the Traffic and Transportation Administrator who may issue a permit for a commercial loading zone upon payment of an inspection and initial installation fee of fifty dollars and payment of the annual permit fee for the year in which the permit is granted.

Upon receipt of the application and fee pursuant to Sections 17.22.010 and 17.22.020 the Traffic and Transportation Administrator shall conduct a survey of traffic conditions in the area in which the zone is to be located. The Traffic and Transportation Administrator shall conduct a study of the character of the neighborhood and a study of the applicant's business needs in respect to the loading and un-loading of freight merchandise, materials or property on the public streets or alleys. Upon the Traffic and Transportation Administrator's findings, the commercial loading zone will not unreasonably impede the flow of traffic and such zone is reasonably necessary for the conduct of the applicant's business, then the Traffic and Transportation Administrator shall issue an annual permit for a commercial zone.
