Public Service Vehicle Parking on HOA Streets
Question: The CC&Rs prohibit any parking at any time on the streets in our community in Goodyear. These streets are owned by our homeowners association. There are residents in our community who own police vehicles, APS trucks, and cable company trucks that park on our streets. Are these residents allowed to do that?
Answer: In some cases, yes. A.R.S. §33-1809 authorizes parking of public service corporation vehicles on streets owned by a homeowners association, despite CC&Rs prohibiting the parking of vehicles on the streets. Although police vehicles and APS vehicles are probably public service corporation vehicles, vehicles operated by cable companies are probably not.
Note: Your homeowners association can require that the official emblem of the public service corporation be displayed on the vehicle.
