Q:   Can I park my Motor Home, Trailer, Jet Ski, Boat, etc on the Road?
A:   Many roads in the township have "No Parking Signs", therefore you may not park any vehicle on these roads. A road is public access, if the vehicle causes a site problem please call the Stark County Sheriff at 330-430-3800. The township allows you to park these types of vehicles in your driveway, side or rear yard. You may temporarily park on the road if you are getting the vehicle out for the season or getting ready to put it away for the season.
