Hastings City Council Votes to Ban Yard Parking


HASTINGS, Neb. (AP) — The Hastings City Council has passed an ordinance to ban parking in front and side yards.

The ordinance passed unanimously at the council's meeting on Monday night. The ordinance would still allow for yard parking if it was part of a home's approved development plan. Parking areas intended for multi-family dwellings would also be excluded from the ban.

Hastings City Attorney Dave Ptak says the city made some changes to its initial proposed ordinance after receiving calls from residents who had questions about it.
