Red Deer to review trailer parking loop holes

Concerns raised about RV owners abusing the bylaw

The loop holes in Red Deer traffic bylaws that allow some Red Deer residents to perpetually park their RVs in the street during the summer will be reexamined when city staff review traffic bylaws.

The city received a complaint from a local woman who noticed neighbours getting around a no-ongoing-street-parking rule for RVs and trailers by moving their vehicles around the block every 72 hours, then bringing them back to park in front of their homes.

“There are too many trailer and RVs on our neighbourhood streets. Our streets are not campgrounds or storage areas,” wrote city resident Jane Osicki.

City Council heard on Monday that staff are already rewriting the Land Use Bylaw. The sections concerning trailer parking will be up for review in the fall. After Osicki’s concern was raised, staff will now also review the section about trailer parking in the Traffic Bylaw at the same time.
