Albemarle County is changing regulations on storing inoperable vehicles in the county. The new rules will go into effect January 1st.

Currently, people in residential districts can keep only one inoperable vehicle outside, and it must be completely covered or screened from view.

Tarps are not considered acceptable and if your house faces the street, any inoperable vehicles must be kept behind the front of the house.

"Once the zoning department receives a complaint, we'll send a code enforcement officer out to the property just to make sure that it is in fact an inoperable vehicle. At that point, they would discuss with the property owner, let the property owner know what the regulations are, and usually give them a week or so to address it," said Mandy Burbage, Senior Planner for Albemarle County Community Development.

These regulations do not apply to residents in rural areas.
