On October 22nd, 2014, the Village Board approved changes to Zoning Ordinance Article XXVIII – Off-Street Parking Regulations. The proposed changes mainly dealt with the regulations of parking any kind of trailer (boat, jet ski, camping, utility etc.) or recreational vehicle (RV) on a property located within a residential neighborhood.
The most significant changes are as follows:
A cap on the number of trailers or vehicles stored outside in approved locations is two (2).
Extended the seasons for Summer seasonal uses and Winter seasonal use vehicles and trailers.
Allow winter seasonal trailers to park outside in approved locations in the driveway and side yard paved area.
Allowed stone/brick pavers as an acceptable side yard paved area as long as it meets setback requirements.
You must be the primary owner or leasor of all trailers stored on the property you reside in.
Please be reminded, before expanding the surface area of your driveway with additional concrete, asphalt or pavers - speak to a Village Building Inspector as a permit may be required. Also, even if there is a sidewalk or not, no part of the vehicle/trailer shall extend into Village of Bellevue Right-of-Way.
These changes went into effect NOVEMBER 1st. You can find a copy of the regulations on the front page of the Village of Bellevue website: Ordinance
