Neat Neighbor Tips about Parking
You might not know this, but one of the most common concerns we get from our residents is about cars and where they are or are not parked. So here are a few guidelines to help keep everyone happy.
  • Vehicles must be parked on concrete, asphalt or paver brick whether it be your driveway or a slab you use for a carport or something similar.
  • You can park your car in your yard for 24 hours maximum, once a month. For example, this might happen if you were washing your car or moving things and you needed extra room.
  • If you see a vehicle that is illegally parked on the street, call the Police Department.

So what about campers, boats and trailers? Well, those guidelines are a little different. Here are a few highlights:
  • You may have one per property when it comes to campers, boats or trailers.
  • The campers, boats or trailers must always be parked on concrete, asphalt or paver brick in a side or backyard. They cannot be parked in a driveway for any extended amount of time.
  • If you live on a corner lot, the camper, boat or trailer cannot be adjacent to the street.
  • What about an RV? Those always have to be parked on concrete and need to be 14 feet off the curb or 4 feet off the sidewalk.
