Article 12.800 - Parking of Recreational Vehicles, Trailers, and Commercial Vehicles in ROW Amended
On any given day in our community, there are 75-100 trailers, commercial vehicles, and recreational vehicles (RV’s) permanently parked and/or stored in the public ROW that create a safety hazard and in some cases are in disrepair and unsightly. Changes to the ordinance were necessary to address this issue and clarify the conditions for parking in the ROW. As such, the City of Smithville Code of Ordinances Article 12.800, was amended by City Council action on April 8, 2019, to prohibit parking of trailers and commercial vehicles within the public right-of-way (ROW) for more than 24-hours and limits the time a recreational vehicle (e.g., RV’s and travel trailers) can be parked in the public ROW to 7-days (if occupied) in a 60-day period. Previously, this ordinance was being enforced on a complaint basis based on past Council direction over a decade ago. Going forward, the ordinance will be enforced on a uniform basis. To this end, the City is asking all citizens to relocate any unattended commercial vehicle, trailer, or recreational vehicle from the ROW on or before July 9, 2019 in advance of a city-wide code enforcement campaign. Public Notice of this requirement was placed in the May utility bills and on the City’s website and Facebook page. Also included in the Public Notice (below) was a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s) and contact numbers for citizens who may require additional information.
