    (b) Hospital Bassinets. In hospitals, bassinets are not counted as beds.

    (c) Places of Public Assembly. In places of public assembly that provide benches, fixed or movable seating and assembly areas the requirements are as follows:

    (1) In stadiums, sports arenas and other places of assembly in which those in attendance occupy benches or other similar seating facilities, each 18 inches of such seating facilities will be counted as one seat for the purpose of determining the parking requirements of the Cincinnati Zoning Code.

    (2) In cases where a place of assembly has both fixed seats and open assembly area, parking requirements will be computed separately for each type of seating area and added together.
