Officials in Barrie, Ontario, a town north of Toronto, voted earlier this month not to impose further restrictions on parking RVs in residential areas.
Consequently, no additions to the current ordinance, which allows front and side yard storage of RVs, were enacted, according to the Barrie Examiner.
As a result, thousands of residents with boats in their side yards, RVs just off the driveway and campers tucked in under the hedge won’t have to move them or store them elsewhere, the newspaper reported.
A town alderman said he believes Barrie already has too many ordinances restricting private property rights and he believes neighbors involved in disputes over RV, boat or personal watercraft parking should work out their differences themselves.
