New restrictions on parking in residential areas of Centennial were discussed by the city council at its study session April 8. These include possible bans on parking in the front yards of homes in the city.
The council discussed and appeared to agree to restricting off-street parking to 40 percent of the front yard area and prohibiting any parking on landscaped areas. In a discussion led by Community Development Director Steve Greer, the council appeared to favor a restriction that vehicles must be parked in front of the owners’ homes, and not in front of the homes of people who do not own the vehicles.
Council members appeared to agree that no recreational vehicles should be parked in the front yard, and that they should not be visible from the street.
Council received a written report from Greer that outlined restrictions in other municipalities in the metropolitan Denver area. In Greenwood Village, for example, recreational vehicles may only be located in a side or rear yard and must not be visible from the street or an adjacent residence.
