What are the rules for parking my boat at my house on my lot or in my backyard in the city?

According to Dylan Lee, a city spokesman:

1. Boats or RV’s can be parked in a garage or carport, or behind the house.

2. If it is less than 6 feet high (not including masts, antennae, windshields etc.), it can be parked beside the house (but not fronting a street).

3. If it is higher than 6 feet, it must be parked in the backyard (or in a garage, carport, etc.)

4. Living, sleeping, and office uses are not permitted in RV’s parked in a yard.

5. Boats and RV’s can be parked anywhere on the premises for periods of less than 24 hours

    I will park my RV and Boat anywhere I please, and flat out dare anyone to do anything about it. I would like to see someone try to threaten me with fines or any other sanction
    and see how far it gets them. No one, including the city, will dictate where or how I park my personal vehicles period!

    you must check the deed and land records to make sure that there are no real covenants that run with the land that prohibit such activity. If there are, regardless of city rules, you can be civillay sued.
