b. What is going on and when is something going to be done regarding the amount of cars in a yard at a home on 24th Street and 34th Ave.
Reply: Thank you for your question regarding parking requirements in the City of Lauderdale Lakes. Please note that the City’s parking regulations do not set forth a maximum number of vehicles that may be parked at a residential property.
The Code Department has received numerous complaints regarding that property. Code cited the property with a violation relating to the illegal use thereof, purporting that the vehicles were being sold, or stored for future sale. That case was dismissed by the Magistrate after the property owner presented evidence that each vehicle was registered and insured, with proper tags attached, in the property owner’s name.
We will continue to monitor the property for compliance with our code – such as parking on the lawn, vehicles being maintained in inoperative condition, etc.
