Where can I park additional vehicles if I need more parking space?
All vehicles parked on the residential front yard (corner lots have two front yards) are required to be on improved surfaces, i.e. a driveway or paved parking space. An additional parking space of concrete or gravel can be created without a permit alongside the existing drive, provided that a four foot buffer between the drive and property line is maintained. It can be 20 feet long and 9 feet wide. It should be filled with concrete or 6 inches of compacted gravel and the edges defined with landscaping materials. Once the space has been created on any property, it should be maintained in order to remain a true parking space.

Keep in mind, some subdivisions may have homeowner’s association regulations that do not allow the addition of a parking space.

At no time should the area parallel to the street be paved or used as a parking space. Vehicles parked on the street should have tires fully on the street pavement and not over the curb or on the grass.
