No Parking on Lawns

no park on lawn carAs of July 1, 2022, Hampton residents can not park on their front lawns if parking is allowed on their street. Neighbors have complained that a yard full of cars is unsightly and lowers values of nearby properties. For the record, no one is being required to install a driveway.  Residents must obtain a permit before installing a driveway. Parking temporarily, such as during flooding, city-permitted event, street sweeping, washing your car, or loading and unloading is allowed.

Improving neighborhoods

This is one of several measures that City Council made after requests from residents and neighborhood associations who want to improve the look of their neighborhoods and boost property values.  Other measures include a regulation to limit inoperable vehicles, clutter and overgrown shrubbery.

No on-street parking

If on-street parking is not permitted on one or both sides of your street, you may park your car/cars on your lawn. On-street parking also is not allowed on many main thoroughfares, which have only travel lanes.
