Boats, personal watercraft, ATVs, snowmobiles, their trailers to convey them, campers and other recreational vehicles may be stored in a front yard driveway within certain seasonal and size restrictions. RVs under 23 feet in length and/or 6,500 pounds empty weight may be stored in front yard driveways but must be 15 feet from the curb line, not block sidewalks or paths and may not intrude into the intersection sight triangle.
RVs over 23 feet in length and/or 6,500 pounds empty weight may not be stored in front yard driveways except for a 48 hour period for loading or unloading, or for a period allowed by a Temporary RV Storage Permit issued by the Community Development Department. Oversized RVs also must be 15 feet from the curb line, not block sidewalks or paths and may not intrude into the intersection sight triangle.
The seasonal aspect of the RV Storage Ordinance is tied to the City’s Winter Parking Regulations. Storage of summer related RVs in front yard driveways severely limit resident’s ability to store their vehicles and meet the requirements of the Winter Parking Regulations. The RV Storage Ordinance limits front yard driveway storage to summer related RVs from April 1st to November 1st. Winter related RVs may be stored in front yard driveways from November 1st to April 1st but then must be moved to other storage for the summer season.
