NORTH RICHLAND HILLS (CBSDFW.COM) - Some neighbors in North Richland Hills are complaining about noise, crowded streets and equipment storage from home businesses.

City leaders have now stepped in to crack down on the problems.

North Richland Hills Mayor Oscar Trevino says home owners are rightfully upset. “We’ve got some neighborhoods where they have panel-trucks that show up and they’re parked there overnight,” he explained.

Residents have contacted the city about a range of issues. “They’re concerned about traffic congestion and just the outside storage and then the look of the neighborhood,” said Trevino.

The North Richland Hills City Council has now imposed strict rules, including fines of up to $2,000 a day against violators.

Trevino says homeowners shouldn’t have to deal with issues that occur in commercial-zoned areas. “You don’t want four lawn mower trailers showing up at your house, or next door to you, at five o’clock in the morning,” he said.

The new rules prohibit outside equipment storage, crowding of streets and, limit the number of vehicles at a home.
