On May 15th, the Austin City Council approved the addition of Northwood and other neighbor-hoods in the Restricted Parking Ordinance, which means the City will enforce front and side yard parking regulations in our neighborhood. A total of 22 neighborhoods complied with the necessary notice and voting requirements within their boundaries and will now be added to the enforcement map. Northwood residents will receive a notice from the City and then enforcement will take effect.

The "Front or Side Yard Restricted Parking Ordinance" prohibits persons from parking a motor vehicle in the front or side yard of a residence, except in a driveway or paved parking space depicted on an approved site plan. Motor vehicle includes, but is not limited to: automobiles, motorcycles, trucks, vans, motor homes, panel trucks, buses and SUVs. A front yard is defined as the space between the front property line and the front of a house. A side yard is the part of a yard that extends from the front yard to the rear property line.
