Cupertino City Council said no to a strict parking proposal that would have banned recreation vehicles from parking on residential streets after residents rallied together in opposition the ordinance May 4.

The new ordinance would have made it unlawful to park an RV on residential streets other than for immediate loading and unloading. Vehicles would have been subject to towing, citations or impound by code enforcement. Currently, cars are limited to 72 hours of consecutive of street parking.

“There were some complaints, and it was fairly difficult to enforce because under the current rules you can simply move under a 72 hour period and satisfy the current codes requirements,” said City Manager David Knapp.

About five RV owners spoke out against the proposed law at the council meeting May 4, saying that the new ordinance was unlike anything else in the region. They said it was unfair to senior-aged RV owners and would have been unrealistic to enforce without street signs letting residents know about the new rules.

Stuart Chessen, who owns a large RV, spread the word about the council meeting by scouring Google Maps, which posts overhead photographs of neighborhoods on the web. Chessen spent about an hour looking for parts of town that had RVs parked on the streets, and found about 11 vehicles. He went searching for some of the RVs and put fliers on their windshields, alerting the owners about the May 4 meeting.
