Park on the safe side! Due to the narrow streets in our community, street parking in residential neighborhoods is not allowed on the side of the street with fire hydrants. Parking is allowed on what is commonly called the 'non-hydrant' side of the street.

Dogs are not allowed off the owner’s property without a leash. Animal waste must be promptly removed from any public area or private premises that is not the owner’s. It is unlawful to keep any animal which disturbs the peace. Citations will be issued if pet owners are in violation of any of the above provisions.
