At the Garden Grove City Council meeting on Tuesday, October 10, 2017, City Councilmembers approved the enforcement of recreational vehicles (RVs) in violation of the RV Parking Regulations Ordinance to begin on Wednesday, November 1, 2017. Warning notices will be issued to RVs in violation of the ordinance beginning the week of Monday, October 16, 2017, through Tuesday, October 31, 2017.
In addition, the Garden Grove City Council adopted a resolution establishing monetary penalties to those in violation of the ordinance. The first violation is a fine of $108; the second violation within one year of the first violation is $208; and the third violation within one year of the first violation and each subsequent thereafter is $508.
The RV Parking Regulations Ordinance was adopted on Tuesday, August 22, 2017. The ordinance requires RVs parked on public and private streets to have a valid City-issued permit, at no cost.
RV owners are strongly encouraged to request a permit through the automated permitting system before Wednesday, November 1, 2017, to avoid being cited. RV owners may request a permit at www.garden-grove.org/rvpermit.
Those unable to request a permit online may apply in person at the Water Counter in Garden Grove City Hall, 11222 Acacia Parkway. A proof of residency, current driver’s license, email address, and license plate number are required.
Under the new ordinance, residents may request up to 12 non-consecutive, 72-hour RV parking permits for the sole purpose of loading or unloading before and after travel. Residents requiring longer accommodations can request weekly parking permits that don’t exceed seven days per permit. No more than six weekly permits will be allowed per residential address per year with at least one day in between each of the six permits.
The permit will only allow RVs to park in front of the address of the resident applying for the permit. The ordinance does not affect RVs that are fully parked on private property.
