Officials in Redmond, Wash., a suburb of Seattle, are considering an ordinance to require RV owners to shield their rigs from their neighbors’ view by building fences or planting trees near where they park their units, according to the Seattle Times.
Current RV owners would have five years to build a six-foot fence or plant trees or scrubs, but new RV owners would be required to comply with the ordinance from Day One, if it is passed.
According to The Times, there are 370 motorhomes, 459 travel trailers and “175 registered campers” in Redmond.
Redmond officials said they are considering the ordinance in response to complaints from certain residents about their neighbors parking RVs for extended period on their driveways.
Storing an RV on a commercial lot in the Seattle area costs around $100 a month, according to The Times.
