Maybe you could compare it to what's done in other cities, as well. Here in St. Louis, it's common knowledge that you have an absolute, irrevocable, God-given right to the space in front of your house -- plowed or not, lawn chair or not. In fact, one year the police dept. had to put out a statment that, no, there is nothing in city, state or federal law that guarantees the right to a parking space, that leaving a nasty note on someone's windshield does not constitute a legal claim, and that parking in "your" space doesn't give you the right to punch someone.
