Outdoor Storage of Recreational Vehicles, Boats, and/or Trailers on Residential Properties


Residents have expressed an interest in allowing recreational vehicle, boat and/or trailer storage in driveways.


On December 14, 2020, the City Council considered the proposed amendment and moved to table the amendment with the recommendation that this item come back in a work session. 

At the April 26, 2021 work session, the City Council discussed allowing no more than one recreational vehicle, boat and/or trailer to be parked or stored in the driveway of a residential lot from April 1-November 1. 

Additional recreational vehicles, boats, and/or trailers may be kept within an enclosed structure which otherwise conforms to the zoning requirements of the district or consistent with Chanhassen City Code Section 20-909(6).

*Enforcement in some neighborhoods is through a Homeowners Association (HOA). HOA rules can be more restrictive than city rules. Enforcement on most City Code violations are done by staff site visit verification/confirmation followed by a letter to the property owner of the violation.

The following section of the Chanhassen City Code is subject to changes:

  • Chapter 20 - Zoning
