How many cars can an owner park on their lot?
There is no Montego Bay community standard that limits how many cars,
boats, enclosed trailers, etc., can be parked on private property.
It was checked out by the President and the OC police. There is
nothing in the Declaration of Restrictions, the Bylaws, or the Town of
Ocean City codes that limit how many cars can be parked on private
property. Cars that have valid license plates are allowed on city
streets and in Montego Bay. The Board does not have the authority
to have cars removed from private property, or from city streets.

municipal lot, public street or alley between June 1 and September 15 of
