be satisfied by paying a one-time fee; Satisfaction of greater than 50% of the required parking spaces by payment of such in 
lieu fee may be approved subject to a minor conditional use permit upon the additional finding by the reviewing authority that 
doing so will not unreasonably overload street parking or public parking facilities nor create a nuisance.
