Parking Regulations

Parking Regulation Information

When Twin Rivers was built in 1969, the community was designed with only 1 – 2 parking spaces per residence. Today, many families have two or more vehicles. Both of these elements make Twin Rivers parking regulations an important part of maintaining a happy community.

When every owner in Twin Rivers purchases their home, they agree to abide by the community’s Declaration of Restrictions and Reservations of Easements; it’s part of the property deed. A section of this document restricts certain types of vehicles from parking on any lot. Over the last forty years, as vehicle types have changed, your Homeowners’ Association has clarified through various resolutions what the restrictions mean and how they are to be interpreted.

Individually, the resolutions can be challenging to understand. This page is designed to help the homeowner avoid violation notices and resulting assessments. Copies of the resolutions are available at the Trust Office upon request.

The following vehicles are not permitted in Twin Rivers lots or on Twin Rivers private roads:

Please Note: Detached homeowners please be aware that a “lot” means building lot, not parking lot, so these restrictions apply to those residences, too.

NO TRUCKS. If it has a bed or a box, it qualifies as a truck -regardless of a cover, a cap, or four doors.

NO CAMPERS/R.V.’s.

NO TRAILERS.

NO BOATS OF ANY KIND. This includes kayaks/canoes/any other watercraft on the roof of the car.

NO COMMERCIAL VEHICLES. Includes every type of motor-driven vehicle used for commercial purposes. If it has a name and address and/or phone number on the side of your vehicle, it’s commercial.

NO VANS. Including those without side and rear windows or without rear passenger seats.

NO MOTORCYCLES. However, you may walk motorcycles over the pathway and store them in your back yard.

RESIDENTS are responsible for informing their guests/visitors of these parking regulations.

 

The above vehicle types are permitted in any lot temporarily and solely for the purpose of loading and unloading.

On Township owned roads: Twin Rivers Drive, Twin Rivers Drive North, Probasco Road and Lake Drive.

Please be advised that trailers that are not attached to a vehicle can only park in the Township’s rural parking zone located along farm land on Probasco Road and a small section of Lake Drive.

Any vehicle not parking in a designated parking space will receive a violation notice.

NO double parking

NO end of the parking island parking.

Parking, driving, or idling on any fire lane or sidewalk is prohibited. Parking, driving, or idling on any lawns is also strictly prohibited.

If a vehicle remains in unmoved for more than 21 days, it is considered stored. Stored vehicles can be reported by residents by completing a Stored Vehicle Information form, or they may be reported stored by the Trust’s parking enforcement officer. Vehicles that are reported stored will receive a violation sticker and a ticket informing them that they have seven days to either: 1.) remove the vehicle or 2.) present the alleged stored vehicle to the Trust Office to provide an odometer reading once per month for the next six months. Vehicles that are subjected to odometer readings must be driven more than 50 miles per month.

If the vehicle owner does not move the vehicle or bring it to the Trust office within the noted seven days, the vehicle will be towed and impounded at the owners expense.

1. Kindly ask that the vehicle owner move their vehicle.

2. If the owner is uncooperative, you may contact the East Windsor Police (609-448-5678) and ask for the vehicle to be ticketed. When the Police arrive, you will need to verify your name, address and permit number. The summons issued is in the form of a complaint; you will be required to appear in court as the complainant in order for the fine to be enforced.

3. If the vehicle has not moved after the complaint has been filed with the EWPD, a resident may call City Auto Center at 609-448-9800 (day) or 609-271-1885 (night). The Towing Service will also require your name, address,and permit number. They will tow the vehicle at the vehicle owner’s expense and they will also call the Police to report the vehicle has been towed.

If the tow company arrives and the vehicle is gone, the caller will be responsible for the towing charge.

Handicap spaces are NOT reserved spaces and are open to all handicap permits on vehicles that meet the parking regulations.

First responder spaces are provided to members of the East Windsor Volunteer Fire and Rescue Squads. Member lists are sent to the Trust before signs are installed. In a parking lot with reserved parking spaces, an owner must choose between a first responder reserved parking space and a regular reserved numbered space. All parking regulations apply.

Vehicle repair in the parking lots is prohibited.
