Mistake to Avoid in an Expansion Project #4
Failure to Plan for Adequate Parking
Leave room for growth, if your lot is full, visitors won't stop. Most city zoning codes call for a ratio of 1 car to every 4 seats when it comes to planning parking. However, a more realistic ratio is 1-to-2 or 1-to-2.5. If the sanctuary is a touch crowded but the message is good, folks will return. But, if they can't find a parking spot, you have lost them.
