My walking-challenged mother-in-law alerted me to my HOA actively yellow lining ALL feasible means to park on our streets. If they felt parking was a problem, why build us in so closely given our financial freedom and discretionary income to own more than one vehicle? Again, my mother-in-law lives with us and needs close access to her car. I’ve contacted the HOA and Ebony Odongo repeatedly defends the purpose of our garage (my family owns 3 trucks and only one can fit). This is a problem! Please Help! Do we have rights to fight the HOA for parking?? There are families with work vehicles… we, as families, love to entertain — where will our guests park? Why would they fail to have a parking solution and why do they feel yellow lining is a solution?
It is normal for homeowners associations to have parking restrictions, and residents are required to follow these rules. This is mostly a matter of maintaining the curb appeal of the community. However, you should make sure your specific HOA has the authority to enforce parking rules. These rules should exist within the governing documents of the association (bylaws, CC&Rs, or operating rules). If you have a problem with the rules, you might consider speaking to your HOA board.
