Parking codes exist to:
Improve "curb appeal" in your community, help maintain property values and keep our county attractive to new businesses and residents.
Here are the basics that everyone needs to know…
Even on your own property, all vehicles must have current valid registration. Vehicles with expired tags, or that are abandoned or dismantled, may not park anywhere for more than 48 hours.
Vehicles must be parked on paved surfaces. No grass!
When parked in a driveway, your vehicle cannot obstruct the sidewalk in a way that would force passing pedestrians into the street.
Never park in a fire lane, or other area designated by a sign, or yellow, or red curb.
Only vehicles with proper handicapped plates or placards may park in a handicapped space. It is illegal to duplicate a handicapped placard.
Commercial vehicles (busses, trailers, trucks, etc.) may be parked on private property as long as they abide by the same parking codes any other motor vehicle is subject to (outlined in the rest of this document).
Home businesses may park their company vehicle on residential streets or their own property only with a "Use & Occupancy" permit. This can be obtained from the county Department of Permits, Inspections, and Enforcement.
Your vehicle must always have valid registration. Be sure to display both front and back license plates.
You can park your vehicle in the same spot for up to 72 hours. Be sure to move your vehicle at least every 3 days.
Always park your vehicle with the flow of traffic. Tip: pull over with the passenger side to the curb
You must park at least 30 feet away from traffic signals or stop signs.
You must park at least 15 feet away from any fire hydrant.
You must park at least 3 feet away from any private driveway (unless you have permission from the property owner or tenant).
Commercial vehicles (busses, trailers, trucks, etc) may be parked on public roadways as long as they abide by the same parking codes any other motor vehicle is subject to (outlined in the rest of this document).
May not be parked on private roadways (streets or highways outside the corporate limits of any municipality)
Vehicles actively executing their commercial purpose may park up for up to two hours.
