Default Parking Restrictions

Do The Villages restrict parking in residential areas? I have lived in a city in the past that did not allow parking on the street in front of your home overnight. Can you park in your driveway or must you park in your garage at night?

Or you can comply with the spirit of the Deed Restrictions and park only in your driveway or garage.

From a May 2012 article by Diane Tucker, the VCDD's Administrative Operations Manager:

"I also am asked if vehicles are allowed to be parked on the streets. The streets are for public access. If a vehicle is parked on a street and impedes the flow of traffic, is a safety concern or has blocked your driveway or vehicles cannot get around it, call your local law enforcement and they will ask that the vehicle be moved if there is a safety concern.

Again, please be respectful of residents and visitors who travel our neighborhood streets. Park your vehicle in your garage or driveway and
concern of safety will not be an issue. If you have a recreational vehicle (RV), you may park the vehicle in your driveway for a period of 72 hours
for the purpose of preparing the vehicle for travel or upon return.
"

You can park on the streets.As stated "the streets are public access,meaning "You"can park.You cannot block a driveway,If it impedes the flow of traffic,which they do not.Or, if other vechicles cannot get around,which they can. So Yes you can park on the street. Have been parking everyday going on 5 years. No tickets ,No problems. Thank You very much.

parking in the street with your driveway or garage empty is just plain rude to your neighbors.

Must be different where you live.We have great neighbors.We do not sweat the small stuff.Never could understand someone saying that is rude. Park it where you drive it,is my saying.Glad I am living here,rather than there.

Sometimes I wish you would step out of your anonymity. Talking to someone, sometimes makes it easier to understand them.
