NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT ENACTED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE METROPOLITAN GOVERNMENT OF NASHVILLE AND DAVIDSON COUNTY:
Section 1. That the codification of Title 16 of the Code of the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County, Buildings and Construction, Property Standards, be and the same is hereby amended as follows:
By amending Section 16.24.330 by deleting subsection K in its entirety and substituting the following:
"K. Motor Vehicles
1. Except as provided for in the zoning code, no inoperable or currently unregistered motor vehicle shall be openly parked or stored on any premises within the area of the metropolitan government. Furthermore, no vehicle shall be at any time in a state of major disassembly or disrepair, nor shall it be in the process of being stripped or dismantled, nor shall it undergo a major overhaul, including body work, on any private property within the area of the metropolitan government. This section shall not apply to a motor vehicle on the premises of a business enterprise involved solely in the repair, renovation or servicing of motor vehicles, or a vehicle inside a structure or similarly enclosed area designed and approved for such purposes.
2. Except as provided in
subsection (K)(1), the parking, storage, or accumulation of an inoperable or
unregistered motor vehicle on any premises within the area of metropolitan government,
the disassembly, stripping, dismantling, or major overhaul, including body work,
of any motor vehicle, or the parking or storage of any motor vehicle in a state
of major disrepair on any private property within the area of the metropolitan
government, shall constitute a nuisance detrimental to the health, safety and
welfare of the inhabitants of the area of the metropolitan government. It shall
be the duty of the registered owner of the motor vehicle, the owner of record
of the property, or the person in possession of the private property upon which
the motor vehicle is located, to abate the nuisance through the removal of the
motor vehicle from the area of the metropolitan government, or to have the motor
vehicle stored inside a fully enclosed structure or similarly enclosed area
designed and approved for such purposes.
3. Every motor vehicle located on private property shall be either stored inside a fully enclosed structure or similarly enclosed area designed and approved for such purposes, or parked or stored in a safe manner on a paved or graveled area, other than a sidewalk. Such paved or graveled parking area for private residential property shall not exceed twenty-five percent (25%) of the total lot area. In any case where this provision is found to be in conflict with any provision included in Title 17, Zoning, of the metropolitan code of laws, the zoning provision shall prevail.
4. Painting of motor vehicles is prohibited unless conducted inside an approved spray booth."
Section 2. That this Ordinance shall take effect from and after its adoption, the welfare of The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County requiring it.
