Change Town of Clay's Ban on Trailers/Boats on Property

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!


On Monday April 3, 2017, the Town of Clay proposed change to the Town's vehicle and trailer parking ordinance [2017-01] passed unanimously with a 7-0 vote by the Town Board

Former Law:

§211-29

"A. No motor vehicle or trailer over 22 feet long, or tractor-trailer cab regardless of length, shall be parked on any Town highway or right of way in any residential district.”

New Law (Changes subsection A and adds subsection B):

§211-29

"A. No motor vehicle or trailer over 22 feet long, or tractor-trailer cab regardless of length, shall be parked <8 words deleted> in any residential district.

B. No tractor-trailer cab or trailer (trailer is defined as a vehicle not propelled by its own power drawn on the public highway by a motor vehicle) regardless of length shall be parked on any Town highway or right of way”

Since the passage of 2017-01, dozens of residents have received summonses to appear in court for alleged violations of the Ordinance.  Most had no idea the law was changed or that they were in even in violation.  The exact number (or even an approximate number) is unknown as the Town seems to be very protective of this data.  

In multiple cases, the homeowners cited were in situations where their lots larger than average and were zoned "RA-100 Residential / Agricultural".  They had spent thousands of dollars in landscaping and concrete work to have a pad poured and an area of their property manicured to accommodate their camper.  They too received court summonses for violating §211-29A.

We as property owners within the Town of Clay are starting this petition in an effort to be heard by the board to revert back to the former ordinance, or at least come up with a comprise.
