Keep Off The Grass

Posted by – Dale Mathes, Code Enforcement Officer

Lately, Auburn Hills’ Code Enforcement Officers have been noticing an increase in lawn parking.  Ordinance 1812(3) states that “Vehicles shall not be parked on the lawn of a side yard, rear yard or front yard.”  All vehicles must be on an approved surface consisting of cement, asphalt, gravel or brick.

This ordinance was enacted because lawn parking is “unsightly, causes the loss of ground cover and erosion, provides potential environmental hazards and could potentially impede emergency vehicles/personnel access to a structure.”

So think of the look of your neighborhood, the local environment and your continued safety and park on approved surfaces only.  C’mon, keep off the grass.
