If there are property maintenance violations at a vacant property, the City will go through the regular notification process whereby the legal owner is provided notice of the violation and given a date where compliance must be reached.
Yes. In residential districts, special vehicles-vehicles more than seven and one-half (7 1/2) feet in height or more than twenty (20) feet in length which is or may be transported or drawn upon a highway, street or body of water-may be stored on a well maintained gravel pad in the rear yard that is a minimum of five (5) feet from side and rear yard property lines. Such vehicles include but are not limited to a truck, trailer, tractor, wagon, or watercraft exceeding these dimensions. Such vehicles do not include temporary construction trailers when associated with an active construction project on the premises. A space used for storage of a special vehicle is to be at least equal in size to the outer perimeter of the special vehicle.
Vehicles must be parked on asphalt, concrete, brick/block (permeable) pavers, grass pavers/porous pavement or pervious concrete.
Anyone who has received a notice of violation has the option to appeal the decision. The City has a Board of Building Appeals who will hear their case and decide if the argument presented is valid.
