(KCPW News) The Salt Lake County Council today discussed changes to the front yard parking and landscaping ordinance affecting unincorporated parts of the county. Salt Lake County Planning and Development Services Division Director Rolen Yoshinaga says the proposed amendments are driven by citizen complaints:
“Parking commercial vehicles in the front lawn areas won’t be allowed. And all parking of vehicles would be on a hard surface, so primarily keeping vehicles on the driveways,” says Yoshinaga. “Commercial vehicles would be on hard surfaces to the side of the yard instead of in the front section of the yard.”
Yoshinaga says there are also proposed changes to the landscaping and vegetation maintenance rules on residential properties, and those include low-water options. Violators could face a misdemeanor citation. The council isn’t likely to vote on the amendments to the ordinance until next month.
