Officials continue to enforce yard parking ordinance

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

City of Savannah code enforcement officials are continuing to monitor illegal yard parking near Windsor Road.

The Yard Parking Task Force began enforcing the ordinance on Savannah's southside last year after neighbors complained about residents parking in their yards. Since then, officials have issued 832 citations.

"I would ride along the streets on a Saturday and see cars parked in the yard," said Linwood Brown, city of Savannah, property maintenance director. "Now it's just opposite. They are parking where they are supposed to park, parallel to the driveway or in the driveway."

The ordinance says cars should be parked on the driveway or within five feet, and must be parallel to the driveway.
