(5) Reimbursement. For developments that provide dedicated, public parking spaces over and above the required minimum parking, the developer may be reimbursed a sum of money equal to the product of the excess spaces and the current reimbursement cost. The determination of such excess public spaces shall be subject to the following conditions:
a. The public parking spaces shall be readily apparent to the public and have direct access to a public way. At no time shall the use of these spaces be limited by liftgates, traffic cones, or other means.
b. A reasonable minimum number of contiguous public spaces, sufficient to be easily interpreted as a public parking amenity, shall be provided. This reimbursement is not intended for the odd one or two excess spaces that may result in a particular development layout, but rather, is intended to reimburse a concerted effort to add to the public parking pool
c. The quantity and suitability of such excess public parking spaces is subject to the review and determination of the Davie Community Redevelopment Agency.
