RVers need permit to park overnight on city streets

PLACENTIA, CA – RV owners voiced their concerns, but in the end complaints about limitations on their parking in this city were just that – complaints.

The City Council passed an ordinance Tuesday banning the overnight parking of recreational vehicles without a permit, after a month of controversy surrounding the measure.

Under previous rules, RVs and trailers were allowed to be parked on the street, but not for more than 24 hours. Police Chief Jim Anderson said this led to people "camping" in their RVs on the street. Owners would wait for the RV to get marked by police, and then move it several feet to avoid the ticket. Anderson described enforcement as "chasing our tail."

Under the new ordinance, which much pass a second reading Jan. 6 to become law, residents who want to park their RVs on public streets between 2 and 6 a.m. must get a temporary permit from the Police Department. That permit can be applied for online 48 hours before, and the permit will be e-mailed to the resident. Residents can also visit the police station, or even call in extenuating circumstances.
