Our street was completely redone this summer, parking slots were provided so no vehicles on the travelled roadway. Neighbor got a nastygram for parking his mh in one, apparently there is a four hour time limit for rv's. It is now parked in his yard but the tail hangs over city property, most of his lot is a steep hillside. Nobody has complained...yet.

Laws on property vary from place to place but in SOME areas the property line is the centerline of the road (in other places it is like the house side of the sidewalk or farther back even) IF the street is "your property" A good lawyer could likely have fun with that ordinance.. But since I'm not a lawyer that's all I can say (This is called stirring the pot. I'll leave now).
I actually do own to the middle of the road and the county is granted an easement 30 feet on either side of that center line. You cannot build on to the easement, you can't plant trees on the easement and there are probably thousands of other things you can't do.
Having a lawyer stir that pot would be more like kicking a hornet's nest. Counties, cities and states have unlimited access to attorneys. They are paid from tax revenues which mean you as a citizen are paying them to fight you. If you were to somehow prevail, they have the ability to use the law to attack you on thousands of other fronts. Very few people want to be put under the microscope by code enforcement officers looking under every rock for something out of place. I prefer to let sleeping dogs lie.

Novato is just trying to make room for another bank... (count all the financial institutions there sometime - they have more than most big cities).

Seriously, the police in Novato don't have a lot to do otherwise. I grew up there and they would ticket kids for riding double on bicycles.

I darn sure made sure it was ok to park my DP next to my house before I bought.

Front of RV has to be even or behind front of house.


So did I. They changed the law.

We have the same 1 night permit to buy here, too. Plus one can't buy ahead of time and must visit the police station every day.

In Seattle, there are areas that are full of people living in all manner of RV's. They've been gradually changing parking regs in some areas, so of turning a blind eye in some so called industrial areas...

We sold our house in Woodburn Oregon and one of the main reasons was that they are now enforcing a 2 day on street parking limit. The home owners association also would not let you park your RV on your property. So for now we are full timers.

Pretty much standard law that has been imposed on many California Cities such as mine. You still have 72 hours,you can get 3 one day passes for your 72 consecutive hours and you can get 36 of these a year that is 108 days a year you can park in front of your house.

Here you just go on line get your permit,no paper in the window or anything,I do it if I need to put it out on the street.Never had anyone check on it,the only way they will if someone complains. I do it just in case something happens and the insurance company could say you were illegally parked.

I don't like it and we fought it in city hall and council meetings for more than 3 years, I see that it is only a year old and it was published in your papers for at least 5 days prior,it looks like no one there was watching your city council.

I have a friend whose city has never enforced their 72 hour rule in years. Then a neighbor decided to rent RVs. He parks two to four in front of his house and they block the corner so drivers can barely get through. So people started complaining and now they enforce the 72 hour rule.

I'm sure your vehicle registration fees reflect a lower rate due to the restrictions, right? Right.

What if an RV from out of the area parked on the street? How could everyone possibly know all the unique laws such as that one? Who writes the ticket? Must be local police, not CHP? Register vehicle at another, out-of-area address.
