As others have said, building codes don''t address this. Local zoning codes might have standards for slab thickness, reinforcing, etc. The concrete should meet requirements of IBC 1904, or the state highway department, for durability. Virginia has standards for erosion control during construction and for runoff (stormwater retention) that are enforced locally, other states probably have similar standards. Most surveyors and site engineers are familiar with these standards. ADA does not apply to churches, but it is good to follow their guidelines anyway.

Does your community not have adopted ordinances? Planning and Zoning? Site development directly affects your community''s environment.

Your state statutes probably have accessible parking requirements for new parking areas.

How big will the parking lot be? Where is all the surface water going to drain to? Is there a storm sewer available? Do they need a catch basin? How will it affect traffic on the adjoining street?

The ada has only dimension guidelines for accessible parking. The parking lot does not fall into a issue that may be building code related. However, I would contact the local DOT and see if they have any recommendations for parking surfaces. They would be able to tell you what concrete mixes/ reinforcement, etc. works best for your enviroment.

How about ADA?
