Resolution banning heavy equipment on residential property pulled

| May 16, 2020 1:00 AM

A resolution to prohibit the parking of heavy equipment on residential property in Coeur d’Alene was pulled from the upcoming Tuesday city council agenda, as provisions in the proposal didn’t factor in certain conditions for equipment owners.

“We’re going to take a look at a few things, so we decided to pull it from the agenda,” said Hilary Anderson, community development director for the city of Coeur d’Alene. “We’re going to take another look at it with a fresh perspective.”

The original language would have made it a code violation to park heavy equipment on residential property, regardless of use. The original resolution made no provision for independently owned semi trucks or privately owned equipment for sale.

No timetable has been set on an updated resolution’s return.
