ODESSA -- Three new ordinances will go into effect on January 1, 2014 that affect where vehicles, boats, trailers and recreational vehicles can be parked.

Vehicles and boats parked in the front yard of residences will be required to be parked on paved surfaces. Residences without an alley, or an alley less than 16 feet wide, will be exempt from the requirement and original concrete strip parking is allowable.

Construction for additional parking in front of residences must meet the following requirements:

· Parking space must be at least nine feet by eighteen feet.

· Constructed of four inches of concrete where curb and gutter exists; or either compressed asphalt, or concrete, where there is no curb and gutter.


Trailers and Recreational Vehicles must be parked or stored somewhere other than a street, sidewalk or alley and cannot block a public right of way. Temporary parking on the street will be permissible for no more than three days in a thirty day period for recreational vehicles only.

To view the complete ordinances regarding the parking on paved surfaces and the parking and storage of trailers and recreational vehicles, please visit the City’s website at Odessa-tx.gov.
