Okotoks residents will be able to keep their RV units parked outside homes until the end of June.
The Town announced May 3 it is temporarily relaxing the regulations for the length of time recreational vehicles may be parked outside a residence to assist families dealing with self-isolation or those who are struggling to pay for storage of their units due to the impact of COVID-19.
Ordinarily, the Town's recreational vehicle parking bylaw permits a unit to be on a front driveway, or on the street but attached to a towing vehicle, for no longer than 72 hours for loading and unloading. After 72 hours is up, the RV must be removed from Town limits for a minimum of 48 hours before returning.
The relaxation will permit units to remain on driveways until June 30.
Those who choose to park their RVs in their front driveways for an extended period must ensure the units are not encroaching onto sidewalks or roadways, and they cannot create hazards for pedestrians or motorists.
Residents interested in parking their units for longer than 72 hours must register their RV with Okotoks Municipal Enforcement at 403-995-6302.
