           Illegal Vehicles

      Improper storage of inoperable vehicles can be a serious problem for a neighborhood. The vehicles are unsightly, clutter the   
      neighborhood, provide harborage for rodents and are an attractive nuisance for children. This regulation addresses two problems
      associated with vehicle storage and repair:

  • The blighting influence that improperly stored inoperable vehicles have on a neighborhood; and
  • The neighborhood mechanic who attempts to operate a vehicle repair business from home.

                Your vehicle is parked/stored illegally if there is:

  • One or more unregistered vehicles parked/stored on an occupied residential or commercial property.

  • A motor vehicle is parked or stored on an unpaved area or sidewalk.
  • A motor vehicle or parts of a motor vehicle that are stored in a structure that is not fully enclosed or not designed to store a motor vehicle.

                 It is the responsibility of the registered owner of the vehicle, the owner of the property, or the person in possession of the property where the
                motor vehicle is located to correct the situation or remove the vehicle.
