Bylaw regulates the parking and use of recreation vehicles, such as motor homes or trailers in the city. Below is an overview of the City's regulations:
- Detached trailers and campers cannot be parked on city streets or alleys.
- RVs, such as motor homes, can be parked on a street immediately adjacent to the owner's residence for a maximum of 36 hours. The RV must then be moved to an off-street location for at least 48 hours before it can be returned to the street.
- Parking of RVs in a side yard setback is allowed under Land Use Bylaw 1P2007. The bylaw only limits the parking of Recreational Vehicles (RVs) in the actual front setback (for longer than 24 hours).
- RVs and boats can be parked on driveways in the front yard for up to 24 hours. Please refer to the Land Use Bylaw.
- Parked RVs and boats cannot block the view of intersections, crosswalks, playgrounds or signs.
