Bill BL2020-388 (as amended)

An ordinance amending Section 16.24.330 of the Metropolitan Code of Laws regarding parking on private property.


Section 1. That Section 16.24.330 of the Metropolitan Code of Laws is hereby amended by deleting subsection K.3 in its entirety and replacing it with the following:

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. For the purposes of this section, “paved or graveled area” includes, but is not limited to, parking areas which use asphalt, concrete, gravel, and pavers. Such paved or graveled area for private residential property shall not exceed 25% of the unimproved 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. This subsection shall not be applicable to any vehicle for which a valid disabled driver license plate or placard has been issued pursuant to Tennessee Code Annotated § 55-21-101, et seq., and is visibly displayed on or in the vehicle. Further, the provisions of this subsection shall not apply to the parking of automobiles during special events on property under the control of the metropolitan board of public education.

Section 2. This Ordinance shall take effect from and after its adoption, the welfare of The Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County requiring it.
