    A.  As authorized by state law, the County of Douglas on behalf of the Town of Minden, adopts this ordinance concerning stopping, standing or parking on public roads. This ordinance adopts and makes a part hereof by this reference the provisions of NRS sections 484B.440 to 484B.527, and directs that the same be enforced within the Town of Minden. This ordinance also adopts the provisions of section 10.12.030, and directs that the same be enforced within the Town of Minden. 
    B.  In the interests of safety and the free flow of traffic, the following streets are designated as no-parking zones: 
        1.  All areas already marked by red painted curbing or no-parking signs as of the effective date of this ordinance. Those areas consist of Tenth Street between Esmeralda Street and Highway 395.

    C.  Upon the written request of any town resident and subsequent approval by the town board, one parking space per residence may be reserved on a street for resident-only parking. Such request must be submitted to the town board at least ten (10) days before any regular meeting of the board. 
        1.  The town staff will conduct a preliminary study of the request to determine whether the owners of the property have met the following criteria: 
            a. That the residence is within one hundred (100) feet of a commercial establishment, office or public gathering place, or situated so as to be adversely affected by the operation of such a place or establishment; and 
            b.  That the resident does not have space for at least two vehicles in off-street parking, or that the resident can show another compelling reason for the reservation of this additional space; 
            c.  That the area otherwise meets the criteria for resident-only parking as provided in NRS or the Douglas County Code; or    
            d.  That the area otherwise qualifies for such designation after a hearing held by the town board and after findings of fact have been made by the town board upon which the board has reasonably concluded that the area qualifies for such designation.
        2.  A report by the staff or its findings will be given at the town board meeting next following the day upon which the request was filed. 
        3.  At the regular meeting following the regular meeting at which it first considers the report, the town board will hold a public hearing to receive testimony about the proposed reservation. The town board will then vote on the request and announce its decision immediately. 
            a.  An affirmative vote of a majority of the members present at the hearing will reserve one resident-only parking space per address. 
            b.  A request once denied may be resubmitted forthwith if compelling reasons exist which the town board did not consider. Otherwise, a request once denied may not be considered again for at least one (1) year.
        4.  Disabled residents may receive special consideration by the town board to meet their unique needs. Such residents may be given permission to have a blue curb, handicap only, parking space by making written application to the town board which contains a description of their disability with sufficient detail for the town board to make an independent determination of the disability. 
        5.  Costs of marking disabled or resident only parking space will be borne by the applicant. First emplacement fee shall be $75.00. Replacement fees shall be the actual cost of replacement. 
        6.  The town board may revoke a designation of handicapped or resident only parking if circumstances have changed such that the residence no longer qualifies for the designation, or that the designation conflicts with safety and the free flow of traffic. A designation will be revoked only after notice and an opportunity is provided for all affected residents to be heard at a regular meeting of the Minden Town Board. 
    D.  A list of the addresses designated from time to time for the reservation of one resident-only parking space per residence, those areas consist of 1626 Esmeralda, Minden.
