In unincorporated Jefferson County there are no allotments or ownership aspects for on-street parking on public streets. There is no regulation that states where a property owner or their guests must park, other than if it is blocking access to someone's driveway or is causing a hazard.

If any of the vehicles become inoperable, abandoned, or are causing some sort of hazard then Planning and Zoning can address their location. It is recommended to have a conversation with your neighbor about the parking situation to determine if there is an amicable solution to the issue.
