Parking in Residential Neighborhoods

Residential Parking Overview
Each residential property owner is required to designate a specific location for parking personal use vehicles (cars, SUVs, vans, small trucks, pick-up trucks) in residential neighborhoods. The City Code requires personal use vehicles to be parked in a “driveway or permanent designated area attached to the driveway,” also known as a Designated Parking Area (DPA). The following outlines the requirements for parking in a residential neighborhood:


Marking your Parking
Phone: (407) 262-7700 Ext. 1104


All personal use vehicles shall be parked in a garage, carport, driveway, or DPA. Unlicensed and/or inoperable vehicles shall be parked in a garage or removed from the property.

Large vehicles, business related vehicles, or recreational vehicles (motor homes, watercraft, or trailers) must be parked in the side or rear yard and be screened with either a fence, wall or landscape material.

The general requirements for a driveway and DPA are as follows:

Vehicles parked in the front yard must be located on the driveway or DPA. Vehicles should not be parked on the sidewalk.            

Incorrect Parking


A defined driveway and DPA must be located on the side of the yard with a garage or carport. If there is no garage or carport, the property owner must select a permanent side of their property for their driveway and DPA. Parking areas of pervious materials such as sod, bark, or mulch must have a defined border. This border/edge may be constructed of landscape timbers, pavers, bricks, or natural landscaping. A permit is required to construct a driveway or DPA made of impervious/paved materials.
