- My uncle has a 28 foot camping trailer and wants to know when he comes to visit me - what are the rules for parking it?
Section 35-383 states that an oversized vehicle “may be parked in a driveway or other permanently maintained parking area” if 1) it’s being loaded, 2) it’s being prepared for a trip — you’ve got 48 hours to get ready — or 3) it’s got a special handicapped parking permit, which is issued by the city’s handicapped access officer.

- Are there any restrictions on putting a new shed in my backyard?
As a general rule, a storage or gardening shed 80 square feet (ie. 8 by 10 or equivalent) may be built "by right" without a City permit. Sheds in excess of that size would require a City permit. This having been said, the location of the shed also is important -- if it impinges upon a Neighbor's property or is located above buried utility cables, etc.
- Are there any restrictions for adding solar panels?
So long as the installation of photo-voltaic cells fully conforms to City Code, the Association certainly has no problem with them.
