Senoia reviews vehicle parking ordinance

The Senoia City Council on Monday heard the first reading of an amendment to the “Parking of Vehicles and Trailers” portion of the city’s zoning ordinance that would bring a few changes to the size of the vehicle or trailer and the locations where parking would be allowed.

There were only a few proposed changes to the ordinance. Of those, and if approved by the council, no vehicles or trailers which are eight feet or higher in height and have more than two axles will be permitted to be parked in front of the main building or dwelling or in the side or rear yards of residential dwellings.

The ordinance applies to personal vehicles such as recreational vehicles and travel trailers and to school buses and commercial vehicle and trailers.

The change in this portion of the ordinance came with the addition of “or higher.”

Another proposed change concerns the parking of vehicles. Parking for these vehicles would not be allowed in any publicly owned, or with the amendment any “leased,” parking area, spaces or street except when loading or unloading and not for a time period exceeding two hours.

Other current provisions of the ordinance state that no travel trailer or commercial trailer can be permanently used for storage or additional retail space inside city limits. Those trailers can be used for storage at construction sites and renovation projects but must be parked in a manner consistent with the ordinance.
