Tan SUV With TX Plates Storing Vehicle Next To Sundance Park Off And On Through June - October, 2013

This tan SUV that is in these pics can be parked at the owner's house right next door with a 2 car garage, 2 car driveway, and 2 personal vehicle parking spaces in front of their house.  That is where this car belongs, per home owner parking spaces allowed in our City.  These are new neighbors to our neighborhood.  They do not know our parking laws.

This kind of parking situation degrades our neighborhood from being mentioned in "Money Magazine".

Code Enforcement can get long term neighbor's vehicles moved, now how about tagging the new to the neighborhood blue car and getting it moved.  The many neighbors across the street on Sycamore never park next to Sundance Park.  

When Code Enforcement allows the tan SUV with the out of state TX plates that just moved into our neighborhood in June, 2013 to stay, with favoritism, that same neighbor expects the same treatment with all their cars.  Obviously, when you allow this to happen, it makes it harder for you to enforce the law without favoritism.

"Last night we heard from the owners of the truck.  It belongs to a couple who recently moved to Louisville and who just purchased the vehicle.  The husband and wife are a little distressed about why the selective enforcement against them.  Commander Kingston will speak with them and convey our assurances that this is all quite routine and innocent. "

This quote is from a May 25, 2012 e-mail to me from Bruce Goodman, Police Chief.  He knows the rules.  He applies them when he wants.  He is a bully.  He does not do his job that he is paid to do.  He should be fired on the spot.  If he did his job correctly, the first time he contacted the owners, he would not be  backed into a corner to save face.  Now, he will not do his job, just to try to prove he is correct, when he is so very wrong.


Here are 2 of our City laws from our Municode.

Sec. 17.20.160. Motor vehicle parking limitations.permanent link to this piece of content


B.  On residential lots, no more than two motor vehicles may be parked on any area of the lot other than within a fully enclosed structure or on the paved driveway which is intended for parking or access to the garage or carport. A motor vehicle which is parked or stored on an improved surface adjacent to a paved driveway, or in a rear yard, a side yard, or a side yard adjacent to the street shall be counted towards the limit of two such vehicles. No more than one such motor vehicle may be an inoperable vehicle as defined in section 8.16.040.D.1 of this Code.

Sec. 17.20.100. - Parking spaces not to be used for storage or advertising. Required parking spaces shall be available for the parking of operable passenger automobiles of residents, customers, patrons, and employees only, and shall not be used for the storage of vehicles or materials or for the parking of trucks used in conducting the business or use, or for the purpose of advertising.(Code 1977, 17.20.100; Ord. No. 715-1981, 15)

This is from our Ethics Code

"Open Government & Ethics Pamphlet 2013
Other Ethics Rules of Interest
Page 7

It also prohibits acts of advantage or favoritism and, in that regard, prohibits special considerations, use of employee time for personal or private
reasons, and use of City vehicles or equipment, except in same manner as available to any other person (or in manner that will substantially benefit City)."

The owner of this tan SUV lives in the green house on the corner with a 2 car garage, driveway, and parking space in front.  This is where this car belongs, not stored next to Sundance Park.

This makes 8 days in a row this tan SUV with the TX plates to store their vehicle next to Sundance Park, when they have a 2 car garage, 2 car driveway, and 2 parking spaces in front of their house on Sycamore.  I was sick and did not get a pic for August 2, 2013.

The folks who live across from Sundance Park have told me that they
are tired of seeing a car from across from their house, rather than the
park view.  They are rude an inconsiderate neighbors, due to Code
Enforcement allowing these TX vehicles to not park in their driveway
like everybody else in the neighborhood.  They park one car in the
middle of their driveway and park the rest at Sundance Park, which Code
Enforcement allows due to preferential treatment of favoritism.

Still not parking their cars in their driveway.  They have had a reprieve long enough from moving into their house in June.  It is time they act like the rest of the neighborhood and respect the home residential parking laws.  This is not their private parking lot.

They just continue to not park in their own driveway.  Sundance Park is not a parking lot for new neighbors, who do not want to park in their own driveways, per our house vehicle parking laws.

Code Enforcement continues to allow the tan SUV to park next to Sundance Park (and the blue car is back, which they cannot keep away).  These homeowners have ample parking on their own property, as this photo shows.  Favoritism by Code Enforcement.  Everybody's else's cars are in their own driveway and front area parking.

Still there, as Code Enforcement cannot do its job.

The tan SUV is back along with their dark car.  Code Enforcement cannot do its job.  Shameful.

This tan SUV was parked early this morning, which means it was parked here on 9-17, late at night.
