Officials backed off a proposed ordinance restricting recreational vehicle parking in Indianapolis, according to a report in the Indianapolis Star.
Proposed restrictions on where Marion County residents could park their RVs were stricken Monday (June 27) by a city-county council committee.
The proposed ordinance would have required RV owners to park the vehicles behind the home’s front facade. But after public outcry, council members said they would study the idea further.
For now, residents may continue to park the vehicles in front yards as long as they are on a hard-surface driveway.
According to the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles, there are more than 3,800 registered RVs in Marion County and nearly 14,000 in the surrounding nine-county region.
The failed proposal follows a growing trend as municipalities and counties nationwide are enacting ordinances to restrict or eliminate RV parking in residential areas.
