The Cambridge City Council listened to residents’ concerns at the first reading of a city code update on Monday night, Jan. 6.
Nine residents were in attendance, with concerns mainly about Chapter 69.11 regarding parking of vehicles, trailers, campers and boats in front, side and rear yards of a one- or two-family dwelling.
The updated code states that vehicles can’t be parked in front yards for more than 48 hours unless parked in a driveway. Storing and parking vehicles, trailers, campers and boats will be prohibited in side and rear yards unless vehicles are in a building or on a driveway.
Mike Macki, council member, said the council puts this information out to the public to get feedback and to work with residents.
The second reading of the new city code is scheduled for Feb. 3, and the third reading will be held March 3. Both meetings will begin at 7 p.m. in the Cambridge City Hall.
Copies of the code are available at the Cambridge Memorial Library and City Hall.
