if it's on their property, it's REALLY not your business or concern. mind your own affairs and let others be. this is lame...

It's kind of a murky issue because such a wide range of vehicles in varying conditions, for various uses is involved. There's also the issue of obstructing views of on-coming traffic to be considered. Living in an area with a lot of other people means giving up some degree of autonomy whether it's dogs running loose, loud music in the wee hours, renting out an RV in your driveway or running an auto shop there--even just making it impossible for your neighbor to get out of his driveway safely. That's why some people move to sparsely populated area in North Dakota or New Mexico.

No wonder there is a law against parking where the darn things can be see, they are really big and ugly.

spin how ever you like, it's still over the top ridiculous that you think you have a right to harass another home owner because he has better toys than you...seriously! wow!

PITMIX - If an RV or a boat on a trailer parked in the driveway of someone else's property is as offensive to your sensibilities as a 12 story apartment building on the same property, then maybe you shouldn't leave your gated community today. There's some unpleasant sights to see in a city ;) Also, the prohibition of parking RV's etc, is not a "land use rule," it's purely an aesthetic ordinance to be enforced only upon complaints by nosy, overly sensitive neighbors.

One person's RV or boat on a trailer is another person's 12 story apartment building. Either it's a free-for-all libertarian paradise, or there are land use rules to prevent residential neighborhoods from becoming storage yards and high rises. On the westside there is a corner residence that now parks 8 landscaping trucks in their backyard and additional trucks on the street. The City has known about this since last summer and done nothing about it. So feel free to do whatever you want with your property.

Pitmix - nice try. If you are seriously comparing a 12 story apartment building with an RV or boat on a trailer, then I have a great book for you to check out - https://www.amazon.com/Logic-Dummies-Zegarelli/dp/0471799416

At 12:12 - Ok, so it is solely an aesthetic reason, right? So, that "rule of law" protecting your eyes from a recreational camper, trailer with a boat, etc etc should not be questioned? Am I getting it right? The "rule of law" hahaha, that's rich!

It has nothing to do with selfishness. It has to do with the rule of law. Parking restrictions have been decided upon 'by the people, for the people' to keep residentially zoned areas looking like residences, not parking lots or campgrounds. These regulations have been in place for a long time. People need to know the codes before moving into an area and before making these purchases. Easy enough. If you cannot store these things properly on your property, then you need to find and pay for storage.

Flicka, just because you don't want your neighbor building a 12 story apartment building next to your house, does that mean they can't use their property for whatever they want? What? Oh, there are land use restrictions that have been agreed upon by a majority? Okay, that's different then.

FLICKA - so just because you don't like to look at a particular type of vehicle, you think your neighbors should be forbidden from parking them on THEIR property? Kind of selfish, don't you think?

In the unincorporated county, you cannot park your RV in the drive way or anywhere in the public view. You can park an RV behind a solid fence as long as it is not in the front easement/yard. You must move an RV on the street within 72 hours. No trailers on the streets for more than 24 hours. No trailers, boats, etc. on the front lawns or in the driveways. I think most cities have the same restrictions. People who buy RVs, boats, etc. need to know the rules and be ready to pay to store. If you can't afford to pay for storage, you should think twice about buying RVS/boats/trailers or move on to ag. land.

Probably the later.

Why shouldn't a homeowner, who pays property tax and a mortgage, not be able to park his/her RV or trailer in his/her own driveway on his/her own property? Are there any safety issues? Or, is it just a lot of nosy, snobby neighbors complaining because they don't like to see middle class toys?

I thought you can't park an RV in the front yard of your house? I just heard in Goleta they're trying to ban parking RV's even in your own driveway!

PITMIX - wait, you can only park in your driveway for 48 hours? Do you have a link to that ordinance? That is absurd. If the driveway is on your property, why should it matter how long you park there? I can understand parking on the street too long, but your own driveway? Ridiculous.

SB City has a 48 hr limit on parking your vehicle in your driveway. This is to stop people from storing cars in their driveway. Only enforced if someone makes a complaint. Goleta probably has something similar.

I hope that that is not the case. I feel that if you own a piece of property, You should be able to park your RV on it.

There is no street parking there and it's actually in a circular D/W which basically is the front yard. So it's all good legally and pretty much unseen from the road.
