Where can I store my recreational vehicles such as boats, campers, RV’s and trailers?
“Boats, campers, RV’s and trailers may be parked in a side or rear yard so long as they are at least five feet from a side property line and eight feet from a rear property line. Boats, campers, RV’s and trailers are allowed in the front yard only on a driveway or parking pad that is contiguous to the driveway. The parking pad must be constructed of bitumen, concrete or paving blocks. Parking of automobiles or recreational vehicles on grass in the front yard is prohibited.”
Am I allowed to keep items stored in my yard under a tarp?
The City does not allow outdoor storage of household items, construction materials, vehicle parts, etc. even if covered by a tarp. Outdoor storage is prohibited unless contained by a solid fence 6 feet in height. Storage items may not contain junk vehicles or junk of any kind. If you wish to build a fence, a permit may be obtained by calling our Building Inspections Department at (651) 450-2550.
My neighbor has an old vehicle in their yard that hasn’t been moved in years. Is this allowed?
No, this is not allowed. Any vehicle that is inoperable or not currently licensed must be stored in a garage or off the property.
Do notices of City Code violations include a fine and court appearance?
A violation notice is simply an educational tool the City uses to remind residents of our codes and notify a property owner of a violation. A property owner will receive multiple notices before a citation would be issued. At that time, an appearance in court would be required and a judge would decide what happens from that point forward.
