In my neighborhood, I've noticed a few people parking on the grass next to their drive way. I know in another near by city I lived in, there was a law against parking a car on anything other than an "improved surface." Is there a similar law here in Frisco? If so, would Code Enforcement handle this kind of thing?

The Comprehensive Zoning Ordinance has provisions for off-street parking. All required spaces must be on paved concrete or other impervious surface if approved by the City Council. To file a complaint with Code Enforcement, call 972-335-5580 ext.188.

Would this also affect those who park off their driveway (next to it), when their garage is accessed through an alleyway?

ie. the garage is accessed through the alley, and a car/truck is parked in the grass next to the driveway.

If a residence has the required paved impervious spaces, and although it is implied that you are supposed to park on this impervious surface, there is no ordinance prohibiting parking on the grass. The vehicle must have current registration and inspection sticker. Boats and trailers must be parked behind the front building line.

So, I could park my car on my front lawn? Is there really no law against this? I know there in Plano and Richardson, and I'd expect there would be one here.

What about parking in residents / homeowners who choose to park in HOA owned grass common areas instead of on their own property?

HOA common areas are set aside for specific purposes such as open space, amenity center, etc.
Parking would not be allowed unless set aside for that purpose.
