Street Parking

Sherwood Estates homes were built with single or double parking garages and therefore we tend to have a lot of street parking.   For the safety of your vehicles, and children playing, we are providing you a summary of the Kansas City Ordinance(s) that govern parking.     

KCMO Ordinance 931216 and 971346 (summary)
Vehicles parked on the street must be:
· 4' from any driveway
· 20' from crosswalk
· 30' from yield, stop sign, or signal
· Tires parallel to curb, within 12" of curb.
· Not on the grass or easement.
· Pointing in the direction of traffic flow.
· Allow 10' of roadway free for movement of traffic.
· License plates not expired for more than 30 days.
· Running condition (tires aren't flat, etc.)
· Not being serviced (ongoing repairs)

Vehicles parked in driveways must be:

· 24" from nearest edge of sidewalk, if present, otherwise 24" from nearest edge of curb.

Trucks, trailers, campers, motor homes, etc.

· Street parking limited to 2 hours. Only exception is trucks under 20 feet and less than 12,000 gross vehicle weight.
· If parked in the driveway, must be 11' from nearest edge of sidewalk or curb.
