The Town of DeWitt adopted a law in 2008 that took effect on January 1, 2010. It places greater restrictions (location and time of storage) on recreational vehicles, large commercial vehicles and other equipment in residential neighborhoods. The law was adopted following persistent complaints of homeowners about such vehicles and the inability of the Town to correct the same. See the links below for details of the law and status of neighborhood overlay exemption proposals.
