Motorhome & RV owners at Port Moody, in British Columbia, are now getting reprieve in this summer, & it doesn’t have anything to do along with cool weather. It is reported that post enacting by law earlier in this year which put some restrictions on length of the time big vehicles can be parked on the city streets, the politicians have now voted for striking down one portion of new rules.
While the commercial & the over sized automobiles are still just allowed for parking on the streets for max 48 hours, trailers, RVs, & motor homes will stay indefinitely parked. This by law was enacted originally as this city receives a lot of complaints through residents about parking every month.
Since by law had taken in to the effect from March, this city enforced it on basis of complaint, handling about 25 complaints about 9 vehicles. But post receiving some feed back from the RV owners who had argued that the by law was onerous, the council had decided for making change. Council man Gerry Nuttall, who has noted that he has travel trailer, said that this bylaw did not address any issues like the people visiting their friends or family who may be staying more than 2 days, or time that the RV owners take for preping or winterizing the vehicles. This council asked the staff for reviewing bylaw in next year after more of data was collected.
Not all of the councilmen yearned to see by law change. Rick Glumac had voted against this, citing the concerns about safety, especially over the RVs blocking the views of the drivers’.
