Parking in Meadow Lakes

Residents are encouraged to park their vehicles in their driveway or garage.    Parking street side impedes traffic flow, is an inconvenience to county vehicles, and detracts from the appearance of the community.  If a resident needs parking space, they should consider emptying out their garage.


When necessary to park a vehicle street side, please remember:

  1. Do not park on the grass—Tires damage grass and sprinkler heads.
  2. Do not block your neighbors’ access to their driveway.
  3. Do not park in a neighbor’s driveway or in the driveway of a vacant home.
  4. Park only on one side of the street:  either the odd side or the even side, depending on the month.
  5. Remove vehicle from the street by 12 midnight or be subject to ticketing and towing by security


To accommodate short-term parking problems for the vehicles of visiting friends and relatives, residents can secure a Pool Parking Pass at the main gate, properly fill it out, and turn into the guard.  The approved pass must be placed on the dashboard in plain view for the evening guard.  Overnight pool parking is FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY--and is only allowed between 9:00pm--8:00am. If a resident needs to use the lot for an additional night, another form must be filled out and turned into the gate daily.  The lot is patrolled by security guards.  Illegally-parked vehicles are subject to towing. 


Residents cannot park their vehicles at the pool overnight, unless their driveway is undergoing repairs and they have properly-secured a Pool Parking Pass for each vehicle.  The pool parking lot is not a parking solution for residents with 5 or 6 cars and nowhere to park them.


Commercial vehicles (movers, repairmen, lawn services, etc) are only allowed to park on site when contracted for repairs and other services by residents.  These vehicles cannot park on site overnight. 


Commercial vehicles (example:  pickup trucks and small vans) which are owned by residents must have all signage covered by magnetic signs--or parked in the garage--while the vehicle is parked in Meadow Lakes at Boca Raton.   Note:  Canvas/plastic vehicle covers (whether installed on commercial vehicles or personal vehicles) are not allowed in Meadow Lakes at Boca Raton.  Failure to comply with these rules may result in:  1) the vehicle being towed (at homeowner expense), 2) bar codes being cancelled, or 3) imposition of a daily fine until the violation is remedied.


Boats, trailers, or inoperable vehicles may not be parked in driveways in Meadow Lakes at Boca Raton.  Such vehicles and trailers must be parked inside the garage, out of sight, at all times.  Failure to comply with these rules may result in:  1) the vehicle/trailer being towed (at homeowner expense), 2) bar codes being cancelled, or 3) imposition of a daily fine until the violation is remedied.


Rental moving vans (for residents needing more time, during moving in or moving out) may park overnight at the pool, after the resident properly secures a Pool Parking Pass.  These moving vans should not be parked overnight in the resident’s driveway.

Construction dumpsters and PODS-style moving containers with no wheels may be temporarily placed in a homeowner's driveway, but an ACB form must be completed, and approval secured, before placing the container or dumpster.  Unless advised otherwise, such containers may only be left on site for a maximum of 3 business days.  Allowable containers are limited to POD-style containers from moving companies only.  No containers with wheels or trailers with wheels may be spotted overnight in Meadow Lakes. Homeowners/Contractors are urged to plan ahead, prior to spotting the container or dumpster, to have it "loaded and gone" within 3 business days.  Failure to timely remove the container or chassis will subject the homeowner to a daily $250 fine, until removed.  Homeowners are urged to remind their contractor, that any damages to the roadways, caused by the delivering truck, dumpster, or PODS-style container, will be repaired by the HOA and billed back to the homeowner.  If a contractor expects to lower "outriggers" to support his truck, heavy planks should be placed between the outrigger and the pavement.
