Sec. 15-32. Parks and greenways--Driving or parking motor vehicles upon or across.

(1) Driving or Parking Prohibited. No person shall park, permit the parking of, drive or permit to be driven any motor vehicle, including any motorcycle or any motor-driven bicycle or scooter, upon or across any park or greenway owned and maintained by the city unless a permit shall have been obtained as hereinafter provided and subject to the terms and conditions set forth in such permit. This prohibition shall not be applicable to emergency vehicles or to vehicles owned and operated by the city.
(2) Permits for Driving or Parking. The director of parks and recreation may issue permits to drive or park a vehicle across or upon such parks or greenways upon finding, based on such application as he may from time to time direct, the following:
(a) That such person is an employee of the city and uses his personal vehicle in the course of performing official duties arising from such employment;
(b) The vehicle shall be used only for the purpose of transporting a person to a facility within the subject park or greenway, which person is, because of physical disability, unable to get to and from such a facility without vehicular assistance;
(c) That such person is transporting equipment or supplies for a program within the park or greenway, which equipment or supplies cannot reasonably be carried to the area where the activity is to be conducted.
Any permit issued according to this section shall state thereon any and all conditions as to when it may be used, the purpose for which it was issued, and such other conditions as the director of parks and recreation may deem reasonably necessary to protect the person and property of others using the park or greenway. It shall be unlawful for any person to park or drive in violation of such conditions or to otherwise alter or misuse such permit. The permit shall be displayed on the dashboard or other appropriate place on the vehicle so that its conditions can be easily observed without entering the vehicle.
(3) Speed Limit. No vehicle shall be driven on or across a park or greenway at a speed in excess of five miles per hour unless such park or greenway is otherwise posted.
(4) Penalty. Any person violating the provisions of this section shall be guilty of an infraction and shall be subject to no less than a twenty-five dollar fine. (Ord. No. 927, § 1.)
