        Oregon is looking at an amendment to the zoning code that gives police the authority to enforce a parking ban on unpaved portions of the front lawns of residentially zoned property.

        Currently, the zoning code prohibits parking of vehicles on unpaved areas of a front lawn.

        The code states that “No person shall park or stand, or leave unattended, or cause to leave parked or unattended, a vehicle, motorcycle, boat, recreational vehicle, or vehicle of any kind within a front yard except on paved or gravel surfaces on any residential property or vacant lot.”

        Stinehart allegedly barricaded himself in his home on Bonnie Doone Dr.  when police arrived. A standoff with police lasted over two hours.
