WATERLOO (AP) - The Waterloo City Council has given initial approval to rules limiting parking in front yards despite objections that residents didn't have a chance to weigh in on the issue.

The council narrowly approved the first reading of the ordinance by a 4-3 vote on Monday night, the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports.

Some council members say the measure should have been discussed earlier with a landlord association and neighborhood groups.

The proposed rule would require cars to be parked in the driveway. But it would allow residents to add a 10-foot-wide extension to their driveway provided it's paved with asphalt or concrete.
