What does the term “outdoor storage” cover?

The term “outdoor storage” covers a broad spectrum, but in general it is considered to be anything that is not normally found in residential yards and on porches, or around business premises. This could include construction materials, auto parts, appliances, unused indoor-type furniture and the clutter of various personal items, stacks of containers, among other things, in plain view. In residential zones, equipment regularly used for lawn maintenance, outdoor furniture, childrens’ toys, bicycles and neatly stacked firewood are not generally considered to be outdoor storage, however an excess of those items, or equipment in disrepair may tip the scales toward it being a code violation.
