Pacific Grove >> A smattering of grievances and concerns were heard in Pacific Grove on Wednesday night concerning the city’s proposed ordinance that would further restrict the overnight parking of RVs, trailers and oversize vehicles.
The comments came from among the 50 or so in attendance at the forum according to city officials. The forum was facilitated by P.G. Administrative Services Manager Jocelyn Francis and designed to gather input about the changes in the policy proposed in July.
The new ordinance would prohibit the parking of recreational vehicles, trailers and vehicles over 22 feet in length or taller than 9 feet during the hours of 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.
Current municipal code limits parking for all vehicles to 72 hours, limits trailer parking to 48 hours, prohibits commercial vehicles in residential areas between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m. and prohibits parking from midnight to 5 a.m. along parts of Ocean View Boulevard and Sunset Drive.
Exemptions under the new ordinance would include permits issued by the chief of police allowing an RV, trailer or oversize vehicle owned by a resident residing on a public street to park the vehicle there for 48 hours in a seven-day period. Emergency vehicles, utility and company vehicles providing emergency services repairs along with oversize vehicles parked while actively engaged in the loading or unloading of goods or merchandise would also be exempted.
