New Parking, RV Storage Laws Come Into Effect, Will Be Enforced

A number of new rules on parking on City streets came into effect on February 6th, 2010. The Alameda Police Department is allowing a “grace period” for owners of boats, boat trailers, trailers, heavy commercial and recreational vehicles covered by the ordinance to find alternatives to storing their vehicles on the street. After, vehicles will be cited and towed.

Alameda City Council amended four sections of the Alameda Municipal Code on January 6, 2010:

Under the new ordinance, section 8-7.8, which prohibits the storage of vehicles on City streets, has been amended to increase the distance a vehicle must be moved every 72 hours from 1/10th of a mile to one (1) mile.

Section 8-7.9, which governs the parking of heavy commercial vehicles in residential districts, has been amended to eliminate the exemption to the code which allowed such vehicles to be parked in residential districts if garaged.

Section 8-7.10, which prohibits the overnight parking of large vehicles on any street or property, has been amended to eliminate the exemption for recreational vehicles (RV’s).

Section 8-7.11, which prohibits the parking of RV’s, boats, boat trailers, and trailers on city streets, has been added to the Alameda Municipal Code.

Alameda PD plans to issue only warnings to violators up until March 1, 2010. After that date, citations will be issued to violators. After April 1, 2010, vehicles in violation will be cited and towed. The bail for the amended and new ordinances is $35.00 per violation.

The ordinance – number 3015 – is available at the City Clerk’s office if you want to see how/whether it affects you.
