PARKING ON PRIVATE PROPERTY

 

Parking in yards and on driveways generates many calls and complaints to the Town of Breckenridge. Here are some rules to keep in mind:

 

  • The only acceptable parking spots in the front yard are on a private driveway or driveway approach.

 

  • Your vehicle may not extend over any portion of the sidewalk or into the street.

 

  • Your vehicle must display a current license.

 

  • The vehicle must be maintained in a drivable condition.

 

 

TOWING AND RECOVERY OF VEHICLES

 

  • Violation of parking ordinances may result in the towing of your vehicle at owners expense.

  • Please contact Breck Park 970-344-8533 if your vehicle has been impounded.

 

HANDICAPPED ACCESSIBLE PARKING

 

The Town of Breckenridge provides signed handicapped parking spots in accordance with the Colorado State Statutes, 42-3-204 and 42-4-1208 and is compliant with all ADA requirements.  Due to excessive snowfall 9 months out of the year, all parking signs are required by the Town Code to be 7 feet above the sidewalk, which is higher than what might be found in warm weather locations.

Persons with disabilities who have a valid handicapped license plate or placard, may park in any public or private designated handicap spot,
but the parking of such vehicles is subject to any fee imposed in such area.  Any person found to have violated the handicapped parking regulations shall be fined $100.00.  If the fine is not paid within 10 days of being issued, a late fee of $30.00 will be added.

Please see the Pay Parking Lots tab for locations of handicapped parking spots.
