Does Marysville have any ordinances about people parking on their lawns, using their lawns as a parking area on an on going basis?
Yes. Marysville Municipal Code (MMC) 11.36.030 prohibits vehicles from being parked on private property if the vehicles meet the definition of “Junk Vehicle” under RCW 46.55.230, and is visible from the street or other public or private property. What is a “Junk Vehicle?” A junk vehicle means a vehicle that meets at least three of the following requirements:
? (a) Is three years old or older
? (b) Is extensively damaged, such damage including but not limited to any of the following:
o A broken window or windshield
o Missing wheels
o Tires
o Motor
o Transmission
? (c) Is apparently inoperable
? (d) Has an approximate fair market value equal only to the approximate value of the scrap in it.
A junk vehicle, on private property is a public nuisance subject to removal and impoundment by the city. Once a complaint is made to the city, the Code Enforcement Officer shall inspect and investigate complaints relative to unauthorized or junk vehicles. The owner of the vehicle will be given a warning notice to act within 10 business days. If the owner of the vehicle cannot be identified, the property owner will be subject to the notice. The owner will have this period of time to file for a court hearing or remove said vehicle. If it is found to be a public nuisance, the vehicle will be subject to impoundment by the city.
If vehicle is being parked on a resident’s lawn for a short period and is driven on a reasonably regular basis, this example does not meet the standard for MMC 11.36.030. In this case, it may be in violation of residential CC&R or Homeowners’ Association Rules. In this case it would be a civil matter between association members and the resident in violation of the CC&R. With that being said, parking regulations depicted under RCW 46.61.570 govern where and how vehicles may be parked on the roadway. This includes grass and planter strips as well as sidewalks, so if the vehicle you are concerned with is parked on either of these, it would be in violation of state law. I hope this helps to answer your question.
