 The proposed regulation changes have been developed by the sub-committee tasked with reviewing current regulations and with consideration of the comments, complaints and suggestions submitted by the public.
 If you are unable to attend the meeting on the 16th, you are encouraged to review the attached regulations, and submit any comments you may have to comments@therez.ms for consideration by the committee.

Those proposed changes are below:




     (d) Prohibited Parking or Storage of Vehicles in Front and Side Yards, Sidewalks and on Public Streets or Rights-of-Way: No vehicle shall be parked or stored in any front yard or side yard within any residential area, except within a garage, carport, apron or driveway. Driveways cannot cover more than 50% of the front yard and a driveway must be solid surfaced with brick, asphalt or concrete.

     Parking and/or storage of any vehicle on a public street, sidewalk or public right-of-way is prohibited. EXCEPTIONS: Parking for isolated, non-reoccurring gatherings, parties, or visitors will be permitted for a period of less than 24 hours. Parking will be permitted in residential subdivisions where signage has been posted indicating where on-street parking is allowed.

      Utility trailers, transient trailers, enclosed trailers, and the like not exceeding 18 feet in total length must be parked or stored within an enclosed garage or open carport or behind the back line of the building (rear yard). Such trailers and the like must not be directly visible from the street or adjoining properties. Such items may be parked in the driveway, front or side yard for loading/unloading, cleaning or repair for a period not to exceed one seventy-two (72) hour period per month. No utility trailer, transient trailer, enclosed trailer, or the like exceeding 18 feet in total length shall be parked or stored within any residential area of the Reservoir Project Area. Boats, jet skis, other water craft, All-Terrain Vehicles (ATV), shall be parked or stored within an enclosed garage or open carport or behind the back line of the building (rear yard). Such boats, jet skis, other water craft, all-terrain vehicles, (ATV) and the like must not be directly visible from the street or adjoining properties. Such items may be parked in the driveway, front or side yard for loading/unloading, cleaning or repair for a period not to exceed one seventy-two (72) hour period per month. 

EXCEPTION: Such items may be placed in side yard and if enclosed by solid fencing in a manner that prevents direct visibility from the street or adjoining properties.

     Any trailer, boat, jet ski, other water craft or ATV that cannot be stored in a garage, carport, or rear yard may be parked on the premises’ driveway under the following conditions:

     (1) Boats, jet skis and water craft should be covered with a fitted covering that is appropriate to the item in good condition, absent tears, holes, or in an otherwise dilapidated condition.
      (2) Any trailer, boat, jet ski, other water craft or ATV shall be in a current state of registration and licensing with the State of Mississippi with the license plate affixed thereto.
     (3) Any trailer subject to this regulation shall be in operable condition with inflated tires, license plate affixed thereto, and in road worthy condition. 
     (4) Any boats, jet skis, other water craft or All-Terrain Vehicles (ATV) located upon trailers shall be in a good and operable condition and any and all boats, jet skis, water craft, or trailers shall be free of garbage, trash, refuse, debris, or other item in violation of Pearl River Valley Water Supply District Rules 6.1 and 6.7.
      (5) [sic]
    (6) Recreational vehicles, defined as a Class A, Class B, or Class C motor home, fifth wheels, travel trailers, or travel campers may not be parked in a residential area within the Reservoir Project Area and must be stored off site. Such items may be stored at a residential area in the Reservoir Project Area under special circumstances, which must be approved by the Pearl River Valley Water Supply District Board of Directors. The Board of Directors may grant a permit pursuant to the then existing PRV fee structure to allow parking such items which would otherwise violate this regulation. The applicant must show to the Board of Directors special circumstances and no adverse effect on the residence or the subdivision and that grant of the permit is not a violation of the subdivision’s covenants. Special circumstances shall include, but are not limited to, situations in which the leaseholder has invested substantial capital and made significant renovations or incurred significant construction costs prior to the adoption of this regulation. In making this determination, the Board of Directors may also take into consideration whether the Recreational Vehicle will be housed in an enclosed building or covered awning located on the premises and which was constructed prior to the adoption of this regulation. In order to justify special circumstance, said enclosed building or awning must be in a good and not dilapidated condition. Under no circumstances may such items be parked in the front yard of the residence except for unloading and loading for one 72 hour period per month. A recreational vehicle may not be used as a residence within the Reservoir Project Area when not located within a campground or park.
     (7) No Specialty Vehicle shall be parked at any residence in the Reservoir Project Area, except when the same is actually being used for its normal purposes. Specialty vehicles shall be defined as a motor vehicle manufactured by a second stage manufacturer by purchasing motor vehicle components, e.g. frame and drive train, and completing the manufacture of finished motor vehicles for the purpose of resale with the primary manufacturer warranty unimpaired, to a limited commercial market rather than the consuming public. Specialty vehicles shall include garbage trucks, ambulances, fire trucks, buses, limousines, hearses, wreckers, landscape specialty trucks, box trucks, food trucks, and other similar limited purpose vehicles. Law enforcement vehicles are excepted from the provisions of this Regulation.
     (8) No heavy equipment, defined as ground engaging equipment greater than 4,000 pounds, including, but not limited to, bulldozers, back hoes, track hoes, skid steer loaders, or the like may be parked or stored within any subdivision or residence within the Reservoir Project Area.
      (9) Construction trailers and heavy equipment may be located on residential properties in the Reservoir Project Area during construction provided a permit has been issued by the Pearl River Valley Water Supply District Building Director or, for construction or maintenance that does not require a permit, for a period of one 72 hour period per month. Construction trailers and heavy equipment may not be parked, located on, or stored at a residential site within the Reservoir Project Area unless a part of a construction or maintenance project.

     (e) Each violation of this regulation shall constitute a misdemeanor and shall be punishable by a fine of not more than One Thousand Dollars ($1,000.00).
