Property maintenance — See Ch. 138.
The keeping of more than one (1) unregistered motor vehicle, assembled or disassembled, except by a person licensed under MGL c. 140, § 59, on any premises shall not be permitted unless said motor vehicle is stored within an enclosed building.
A special permit to keep more than one (1) unregistered motor vehicle on any premises not within an enclosed building, after a duly called public hearing to which all abutters to the premises have received notice, may be granted by the Board of Selectmen if it finds that such keeping is in harmony with the general purposes and intent of this chapter, will not adversely affect the neighborhood and will not be a nuisance.
All such special permits granted shall limit the number of unregistered motor vehicles to be kept on the premises by the permit holder, shall not run with the land and shall be limited to a reasonable length of time.
This chapter shall not apply to motor vehicles which are designed and used for farming purposes, nor shall this chapter apply to landowners or tenants who store motor vehicles out of sight of abutters and public ways.
Whoever violates any provisions of this chapter shall be liable to a penalty of five dollars ($5.) per day for each day of violation, commencing ten (10) days following date of receipt of written notice from the Board of Selectmen.
