(A)   It shall be unlawful for any person, firm, or corporation, directly or indirectly, or any owner or occupant of land in the residential zone, to construct, operate, or maintain a parking area, either paved or unpaved, in the front yard of any lot. For the purpose of this section, front yard shall mean and include that area between the sidewalk, or street line in the event there is no sidewalk, and the front line of the principal building, extending in both directions to the side lot lines.
   (B)   It shall be unlawful to use that portion of a vacant lot within 30 feet of the sidewalk lines for parking in the residential zone.
   (C)   No person, being the owner or having control of any building, shall violate or fail to conform to any provision of this section, or fail to obey any lawful order of an officer charged with its enforcement. Each and every day on which any person continues to violate the provisions of this section, after having been notified of the violation, shall constitute a separate offense. This conviction shall not relieve any person from thereafter complying with the provisions of this section, and shall be sufficient cause for the Chief Building Official to refuse further building permits to the offender until a time as the orders have been complied with.
