LONGMEADOW, Mass. (WWLP) – The Town of Longmeadow plans to review a bylaw regarding the overnight parking of commercial vehicles in personal driveways. It was written to protect property values.
You can read the full bylaw below:
“Private garage, of such size and construction as to accommodate no more than three automobiles. A detached garage shall be permitted in lieu of, but not in supplement to, any existing like facility. A totally enclosed private garage must be used for the overnight vehicular storage of commercial vehicles which includes vans and pick-up trucks used in connection with a business or trade or which have commercial lettering thereon.”
Residents have told 22News the bylaw is not being enforced. Town Manager Stephen Crane said, however, that if the town receives a complaint, a building inspector will follow up.
