Sec. 8-2-40
Parking of semitrailers or truck tractors.

(a) No semitrailers or truck tractors which are typically operated in conjunction with each other and called "18 wheelers" shall separately or together be parked in the Town except in areas zoned for industrial use, or while being loaded or unloaded.

(b) By special review of the Board of Trustees, an owner of real property may annually file a petition to be exempted from this restriction on his or her property.

(1) The primary basis for granting the exemption will be that the impact of the parking on the neighbors and neighborhood is minimal. Thus, parking of truck tractors on large lots on an infrequent basis, when they are not left to idle, and when they generally enter and leave the property between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m., are issues of importance in determining whether an exemption should be granted.

(2) Because neighborhoods are in a constant state of flux, all exemptions will expire one (1) year from the date they are issued.

(3) The Board of Trustees may designate specific guidelines to the Town's staff through which these exemptions may be granted on an administrative basis.

(4) Subject to the provisions set forth herein and Chapter 16 of this Code, the applications for use by special review must be submitted before March 1, 2001. Upon submission, public notice shall be given and the matter set for hearing before the Board of Trustees without first being heard by the Planning and Zoning Commission. No applications will be accepted where more than one (1) truck tractor would be parked on any parcel of land or multiple adjoining parcels owned collectively or individually by related persons or controlled entities. The use by special review, when issued, will be in effect for one (1) year and will automatically expire at the end of a thirty-day grace period following the end of the one-year time period. If the use by special review expires or it is revoked because the conditions upon which the use by special review have not been met, the application cannot be resubmitted. The use by special review is not transferable or assignable. (Ord. 431 §4, 2001; Ord. 481 §1, 2003)
