Anyone have a good nuisance parking ordinance? In particular, I'm looking for something that says you have two front yards if you live on a corner lot, neither of which can be parked on.

Thanks!

Our code prohibits parking on any landscaped or turn area. It is rarely enforced in residential districts, but we use it on commercial properties all the time, especially car dealers.

Here is what our code reads:

Parking Prohibited at All Times

Except temporarily for the purpose of and while actually engaged in loading or unloading or in receiving or discharging passengers or property and while the vehicle is attended by a licensed operator so that it may be moved promptly in case of an emergency or to avoid obstruction of traffic, no person shall at any time park or leave standing any vehicle:

(17) Upon any landscaped or turf area.

The City of Kalamazoo has a pretty comprehensive and strict Ord. when it comes to parking.

A lot of amendments have been made to the Ord. in the last couple years as a result of parking concerns related to WMU students parking on lawns and just about anywhere else the feel like parking.

You can access the Ord. from the website below. Good Luck

Hey Josh - I checked out the Kzoo website, but can't find the ordinances. Do you know what section they are in?
